Customer Question
I think she just...

I think she just got a bit of chocolate, smaller than a "kiss."

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the dog?

Nothing so far. What kind of reaction will she have?

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

No, but she's 14 years old and just laying around as she usually does.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name?

Daisy.

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

She's on a diet of Pettigree chicken and rice. I trying her out. Her owner died recently, the family already has numerous dogs and they wanted to find another someone to take care of her.

But before I can start I need a little more information to make things clearer to me, so could you please confirm the following :

1. Was this milk chocolate or dark chocolate?

2. How much does your dog weigh { In pounds }?
