Dr. Paul Brazzell here.

I am so sorry that no one has helped you. That is not acceptable!

my doggy got into the trash on Tuesday night. On Wednesday she wouldn't eat or drink. She began to stumble when she walks. Today is Thursday and now she's acting as if her hind legs hurt or maybe her butt. She's not jolly and running around and she seems to have a hard time standing

Thanks for getting back to me.

I dont like to have to say this but she needs to be examined.

They will want to check her blood and urine and give her some fluids and anti-nausea medications

Please update me after the visit

I would be happy to review all of the results with you

I worry about pancreatitis.

Paul
