Customer Question

my 13 year old golden is consipated
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the Golden's name?
Customer: Thurston
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Thurston?
Customer: It is very hot here, he isn't eating a lot. I believe that he is drinking water. His tummy seems to have been upset for a couple of days. Not sure if it is the heat or he just doesnt' feel well. He is alert and otherwise seems ok
