Customer Question

My dog has been shaking off and on and won't jump up like she normally does. This only started a couple of hours ago. She's not limping, but has yelped some when jumping down off of the couch. There is a bit of swelling on her back, near top of hind leg
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?
Customer: There are no visible wounds anywhere
JA: What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Sasha, just turned 5
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Sasha?
Customer: She's not eating her dinner and normally she eats it immediately
