Customer Question
Had her out playin...

Had her out playin fetch in the snow. Ran around a ton per usual. Since coming in she started suddenly licking her lips nonstop, and has some drool coming out.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know what to do with the drooling. What is the dog's name and age?

Colbie. 5 year old lab

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

Colbie

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

She has arthritis in her tail that sometimes flares up. For that reason I have some rimadyl & tramadol on hand
