Customer Question
Older dog, whimpers when...

Older dog, whimpers when walks or moves, now he is walking in circles then lays down. He is getting glucosamine biscuits and medicines

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

His name is ***** ***** 10ish. It looks as if he just can not or does not want to stand or walk

Veterinarian's Assistant: How old is Chaos?

Chaos is somewhere in the vicinity of 10. We inherited him a few years ago

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

He is an overweight chow but up till now he loved to run and play
