Customer Question
She has been deteriorating...

She has been deteriorating for 4 days, becoming more listless and now won't eat. Keeps her head low and stares. Going to the vet shortly, but thought I'd check the internet.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What sort of animal are we talking about?

Red, female Doberman Pinscher

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

Luca

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

She is normally feisty and "bossy".
