Customer Question
Our cat seems to...

Our cat seems to have trouble walking and jumping up on the bed, discomfort in his backside.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Did the cat have a fall?

He missed the bed on to carpet trying to jump on it.

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the cat's name and age?

His name is ***** ***** we think he is about 12. We have had him 11 years from humane society.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Bud?

He has been on a strict cat food diet, and no obvious litter box issues.
