Customer Question

Second opinion] - My 10 year old pug/shih tuz, has been having some skin irritation. Started two weeks ago ( we had started a different food) thought it may be a reaction so we gradually put him on acana single protein food. He has been eating very well. This morning when we got him up he was extremely tired & shaking he wouldn't go out to pee. He also has his back arched .
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?
Customer: Mylar
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Mylar?
Customer: No that's about it.
