Customer Question
You can tell that...

You can tell that he hurts and when I try to pick him up he yipes. Its like his leg or his belly. He really doesn't walk with a limp but he's barely walking. He's always had bad breath but it seems worse. He won't eat or drink for a day now. He's just not himself.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What sort of animal are we talking about?

He's a chihuahua

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?

Ya and its not really his foot he acts like it's his leg or belly

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the Chihuahua's name and age?

Mojo and he's like 4 or 5

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

Not really

Hi this is Dr. Christie. I'd like to try and help you with Mojo.

Did Mojo experience any trauma such as a fall or get or get hit by something?

Is he Lyme vaccinated or tested?

Is he having any vomiting or diarrhea?

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

Dew claw ripped. Well, I was walking her (small chihuahua)
Well, I was walking her (small chihuahua) and sometimes she can be stubborn. She will try and go in prior to actually using the restroom. In order to get her to continue walking around you have to drag her a bit. Tonight when I was walking her she was trying to go inside prior to using the restroom. So I started to drag her out a little bit to encourage her to move in another direction. She then limped toward me and started licking her dew claw. It has been completely torn and is hanging. The bleeding has stopped and we cleaned the wound with peroxide. She does not appear to be in pain but does not like anyone touching the area. … read more
