Is this advice I have to pay for

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What seems to be the problem with the dog?

She is 14 she has dementia, I just noticed yesterday this rattling like vibrating sound coming from her. I heard it again this morning and I held her head and about and it's coming from that area.

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name?

Pepper

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?

She does this running thing where she runs from the front door as dad as she can into the back sliding glass door and she hits it hard and as hit her head at times too. She will just keep going until sometimes I can pin her down.
