Thanks for trusting me to help you and Ponzu today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 30 years of experience and would be happy work with you but need a bit more information to better assist you if you don’t mind.

Did the previous owner give up the dog to you on their own accord?

Was Ponzu getting any vet care previously? If so, are you going to be using the same vet?

Does Ponzu seem to be responsive to you as far as when you ask him to do things?
