Customer Question
I have a senior...

I have a senior Pomeranian who's right now experiencing problems trying to poop. I m sure he's constipated and I think he's unpacked. He's crying and straining and its 11:30 at night here

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. The noise must be worrying. I'll connect you to the Veterinarian. What is the dog's name and age?

Clarence. He's about 16 years old. He's got arthritis too

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

He hasn't any other problems
