Customer Question
He has a red...

He has a red rash under his legs and is very lethargic. He is one year old and usually on the hyper side. He has been lying down all day and wont eat.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?

Not that I can think of.
