She's panting more than...

She's panting more than normal, and yelping when we try to pick her up. Seems to have some kind of pain, but nothing when we rub her chest, legs, and back. Eating and drinking normally (although maybe a slight loss of appetite).

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

I don't see or feel anything. She's not limping or

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

Sadie. She's 14 almost 15

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

She has these fatty lumps all over. Not growing, but moveable and soft. We were told that they are fat deposits, and normal. However, she does have a large on on her front leg and on her back near her spine.
