She had a buprenex shot about 5 hours ago, she can't really

Customer Question

She had a buprenex shot about 5 hours ago, she can't really move around and she is whining off and on
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Cindy and she is 11+
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Cindy?
Customer: She was also given tramadol and has arthritis in her back legs
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.
