Customer Question

he's had fleas and his gums are white so I"m trying to find out how much iron I can give him
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Using the wrong medication for fleas can be dangerous. You should definitely talk to the veterinarian. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Brownie and he's around 8 I think. He is a rescue
JA: Is there anything else important you think the veterinarian should know about Brownie?
Customer: no, I don't think so
