Customer Question
My fiance dog named...

My fiance dog named Daisy is around 6 years old. She is experiencing rapid scratching in her underbelly and she was just groomed 2 weeks ago. What i stumbled upon is that she hasnt had a current rabies vacc since 2012. I immediately scheduled her for next week in our area but she is very uncomfortable.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?

No. Shes extremely overweight and i don't think she can reach where she is trying to scratch. Her owner is out of state on business and Im here with her.

Veterinarian's Assistant: The Expert will ask you more detailed questions to find out what is causing this. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Daisy?

Shes a Chihuahua mix and very overweight.
