Customer Question

I believe she has a painful probably rotten tooth. She was shaking like crazy and I've been curled around her for 45 min to an hour. I just moved here 2 days ago and live in Goodyear. Should she see someone tonight or is tomorrow okay.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What sort of animal are we talking about?
Customer: An almost 16 year old Cairn Terrier. Otherwise in excellent shape. The vet didn't tell me about this tooth in the back.
JA: OK. What is the cairn terrier's name?
Customer: Mia
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Mia?
Customer: No, she just had a Parvo shot before we left CA. That vet mentioned the tooth.

Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 2 months ago.

Is Mia on any medication at this time?

Is she eating and drinking well?

Are there any symptoms specific to the suspect tooth pain aside from shaking?
