Customer Question
I wasn't expecting this... ...

I wasn't expecting this...

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What seems to be the problem with the dog?

Umm, my 1yr old female lab dog seemed to be displaying signs of going into heat.. licking down there, keeping her tail down to cover her rear, calmer personalitly...

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

But she seems to be licking her rectum - which i have never seen her do before.

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

And she won't let me take a look.
