Customer Question
12 year old Havanese...

12 year old Havanese is shaking and whining and hiding. he will only ome out when told he gets a snack

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. What is the Havanese's name?

George

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

He has a bad hip that bothers him sometimes but this doesn't seem to be it. He had surgery on that hip when he was about a year old and many of his teeth have been removed. i think he was a puppy mill dog I have another dog Cock a poo named Molly and I'm afraid if something happens to George Milly will die from missing him.
