Customer Question
Took her in about...

Took her in about a week ago 4 I kind of shivering stiffness and fever the vet put her on antibiotics and a painkiller but now she started having a sort of drunken walk very lethargic, she only has two days left of antibiotics I was hoping she would be feeling a little bit better by now her vet was initially suspicious of a bladder infection

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What sort of animal are we talking about?

Female English Cocker Spaniel about 5 years old

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. It could be an infection. The Expert will know what to do. What is the English cocker spaniel's name?

Mocha

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

She's been eating and drinking pretty normally nothing odd about her stool
