Customer Question
Broken pelvis won't deficate ...

Broken pelvis won't deficate

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

Champ 8 years old

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name?

Champ

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

No he's just injured severely I feel because I know him and he won't use the bathroom and besides the fact that he has to drag himself to get comfortable I just feel he needs more attention then the instructions that were given
