Customer Question
My 12 week old...

My 12 week old Boston Terrier is limping in the right hind leg. He’s little or no weight on it. I think it is getting worse, though he doesn’t cry out.

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?

Noise?

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

I am talking about limping in the right hip or leg
