Customer Question
She is a Bichon...

She is a Bichon and I noticed today that she is acting different and her tail is between her back legs. She didn't eat her breakfast (but sometimes she skips breakfast) and she wants to be held or snuggled on your lap

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

Izzy and she is 11

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

She is itching a lot and scratching, however she always had that problem
