Customer Question

JA: What sort of animal are we talking about?
Customer: An 7.5yr old boxer
JA: OK. I'll do all I can to help. What seems to be the problem with the boxer?

Hello. I will in the am when we go for a walk. I think it might have been an overdose of Glucosamin. I will send you pictures when I am walking him.
