Customer Question

Hello! I am concerned about my 15 lb 2 year old westie.. We had a normal day today: walk, food, water, etc.. about 3 hours ago I gave her an "over the counter" topical flea/tick medication.. I hadn't been paying too much attention to her as I was doing stuff around the house. She came up to me about an hour ago with a weird walk.. She is almost curved in a c to the right side. I can't explain it besides that. It's like she is hunched to one side.. However, she is walking/eating/drinking/playing normally..
JA: IÂ’m sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?
Customer: no wounds, nothing out of the ordinary.. no pain.
JA: The Veterinarian will ask you more detailed questions to find out what is causing this.
Customer: I gave her a bath to rinse off the medication because that is the ONLY thing that we did different today.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?
Customer: No not really.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
