Customer Question
He is a 13...

He is a 13 year old Cockapoo and has elevated bile acids and an enlarged liver. He also has arthritis and is on Gabapentin for pain but is still in pain. Dr. cannot add NSAID because of liver issues. He is an active and happy dog, but he is just recovering from a UTI and Pancreatitis. Trying to decide whether or not to continue to treat the pain or do an ultrasound to see if it is cancer.

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

Joe Joe

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

He is on Bactril (sp) and another med for the pancreatitis, in addition to the gabapentin

Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pet today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have provided regarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? How long has this been going on for? Has he had x-rays performed?
