Customer Question

He ran outside yesterday barking at something, then yelped. He will not put any weight on his right rear leg. I read last night it was ok to give him aspirin. Now I regret it. I gave him a very small dose for his size and now he is throwing up anything he eats. Im very concerned about him. He is 12 years old.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?
Customer: He is small, chihuahua mix. A little overweight.
