Customer Question
Hi. My pets seem...

Hi. My pets seem sick, one has had seizures and the other loss of appetite and lethargy, coughing and drooling

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

Pitbull, both

Veterinarian's Assistant: Maybe I'm confused. I thought you had a problem with a pet. Is that correct?

Yes, they are dogs

Veterinarian's Assistant: Seizures always look scary. Let's get you talking to the Veterinarian. What is the Pitbull's name and age?

Nala, 8 months

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

She doesn't have her shots, and she might be pregnant. Not certain. We weren't aware of her signs when she was in heat.
