Is this chat....for real? Do I have to pay for advice? Thank you. Kent
JA: I'll do all I can to help. What is the matter with Kent?
Customer: LOL, It's papa Kent....it's KODAK i'm asking about. I adopted KODAK when he was approx. 1 year old. I'm sure he's a purebred, just by his piercing blue eyes
and the tan and white coat and other for sure Siberian Husky
characteristics. I figure he is close to 13 years old (Human Years)
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Kent?
Customer: Anyway, KODAK went to live w/ a family for approx. 3 years while I was away. I rescued him this past July/Aug. I don't understand, they didn't trim his nails
(they were at least 1 1/2 " long) Subsequently he could hardly walk. Since then, I got him trimmed up, Here w/ my other two dogs (which I'm convinced has helped w/ his depression) We, myself and the total 3 dogs, go for a brisk walk around the block at least once in the morning, and/or park, and /or another walk before bedtime. Been suplementing glucosamine, fish oil, a multiviatim (sp) and just recently added a fiber pill. I usually give it to KODAK w/ a spoon ful of peanut butter. His tail has been up, and always following us around the house for human food. This morning for his walk, I noticed he appeared to be real achy and pulled back on our walk around the block. He didn't make it up the stairs to our apt., fell down, and I picked him up (about 60 lbs) and got him inside. He didn't eat on his own, but I did bring some canned food
w/ a little bit of peanut butter and he ate that. His look just appears to be real spacey. Also while he was laying down, me and the other papa saw KODAK's rapid breathing for a bit. In addition, the way he was laying...his Left rear leg, had an uncontrollable shake.
