My name is ***** *****. Our chihuahua has a few bumps on her

Customer Question

Customer: My name is ***** *****. Our chihuahua has a few bumps on her body. When my wife tried to take a look at one of them, our dog showed her teeth. They may have begun once we began a new shampoo for her although I cannot say that with certainty. This may also have occurred when she was accidentally given Pileral in her ears. She has been getting Posatex for a fungus in her ears. She is otherwise fine.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: For example?
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $19) to post your type of question to Dog Veterinary Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?
Customer: Sure
JA: OK. Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
