Customer Question

I have a 4 week old Shih Tzu puppy that fell off the bed.
JA: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the dog?
Customer: I am trying to figure out if she needs to go to the vet
JA: Where does the dog seem to hurt?
Customer: She's not crying or anything but she's not very steady on her feet
JA: OK. No obvious pain. The noise must be worrying. I'll connect you to the Veterinarian. What is the dog's name?
Customer: We haven't named her yet
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?
Customer: She's not eating very well
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.

Hey there! I suspect she's in shock and may have a concussion if she's unsteady on her feet. I would definitely recommend having her evaluated by an emergency vet tonight. With prompt treatment, her chances at making a full recovery are much better than waiting until morning. Hope that is helpful, let me know if you have any other questions! - Dr. C

So what ended up happening with your little pup? Doing better this morning?

I took her to the vet. They said she was fine. She's doing much better this morning. Thank you so much.,
