Customer Question
My 13 year old...

My 13 year old golden is consipated

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the Golden's name?

Thurston

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

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
