Customer Question
Hi I have an 10...
Hi I have an 10 yr old chi. I have recently also had 3 newborn foster puppies that were bottle fed at my home. In the last month my chi was very swollen..almost like a water retention. It went away after approx 5 days. He stopped jumping up on the couch and the last 2 days he has been very stiff and sore. He will yelp when touched and won't walk down stairs. I don't have a clinic open close to me until monday
