Customer Question
My 3 year old...

My 3 year old Pitt keeps shaking and is acting really scared I think he might have hurt himself last night or this morning but I’m not sure

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?
