Customer Question
He was acting weird...

He was acting weird staring at nothing. Twitches something and cries like he's in pain every once in awhile. He is a little better today but is still having small twitches near his hip area

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. The noise must be worrying. I'll connect you to the Veterinarian. What is the dog's name and age?

Forrest he is 9 and is a chiuahua

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