Customer Question
Left paws booties on...

Left paws booties on too long. So now my dogs feet are dark red to purple in color.

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

Her feet are dark red to purple in color

Veterinarian's Assistant: Where does your dog seem to hurt?

She isn't crying out in pain..she is just uncomfortable

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. No obvious pain. The noise must be worrying. I'll connect you to the Veterinarian. What is the dog's name and age?

No noise

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?

Feet swollen
