Customer Question
Her eyes are red...

Her eyes are red, she can barley open them and she can't get up

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name and age?

Daisy 11 years old

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

Her breathing is weird. She can barley pick her head up

Hello, I'm Dr. Hinson and I'd like to try and help you today.

So sorry that Daisy is having this issue.

Can you tell me when her symptoms started?

Can you look at her gums just above her canine teeth and tell me what color they are?

Is she eating and drinking?

Does she take any medications?

It looks like Dr. Hinson had to opt out of the question. How is your companion doing at this time?
