Customer Question

Nash, lab had surgery today to remove mass cell tumors. He is very uncomfortable and will not lay down. I've given him his TRAMADOL but he just is not comfortable at all
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What sort of animal are we talking about?
Customer: Labrador dog, male, 10yrs apx 88 lbs. in very good health otherwise.
JA: OK. 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: No. Just very uncomfortable and whimpering. Standing. Wants me with him but just can't relax.
