Customer Question

Our 14 yr old teacup Pomeranian seems to be struggling to breath. She is off her food and seems reluctant to drink. She fell over yesterday after walking to the door. She's had a little milk this evening.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: She seems very short of energy and can't settle. We took her to a vet today but they said they couldn't find anything wrong. However she seems a little worse this evening
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Dog Veterinarians generally expect a deposit of about $19 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). 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.
