Customer Question
My 8 yr old...

My 8 yr old mastiff has a hematma

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the Mastiff?

She shook her head the other night, hit the table a couple of times with her ear...now she has a hematoma will it go away on its own?

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

Annie

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

Shes in awesome health, rarely shakes her head
