Customer Question
Hi Tony here. Veterinarian's...

Hi Tony here.

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

Our dog Keira has inflammable Howell disease and she had her anal gland drained today they told us she will be uncomfortable for a while but she is very lethargic and panting quite heavy

Veterinarian's Assistant: Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name and age?

My dog Keira has inflammatory bowel disease and today she had her anal gland drained they told us she would have some discomfort but she is very lethargic and panting heavily, is this normal to happen after the draining. Thanks Tony

Veterinarian's Assistant: How old is Keira?

Three

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Keira?

No, the same vet has all of her history we have been working with these vets for about two years
