Customer Question

JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?
Customer: no wounds that I can tell
JA: What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Reggie and he is a schnauzer 8yrs old. He is a little bigger than a mini and weighes 25 lb. so he is a little overweight.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Reggie?
Customer: He seems fine otherwise. My vet says it is a fatty tumor and wants to do surgery. I have been giving him twice a day dissolve from paw healers. it seems to make it softer but it isn't gone . I was told it takes quite awhile .I also put oils on him.
