Customer Question
Shaking on the inside...

Shaking on the inside like he shivering on the inside

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

A pit mix

Veterinarian's Assistant: Maybe I'm confused. I thought you had a problem with a pet. Is that correct?

A pit bull mix

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the pit's name and age?

Oreo is his name and he's 3 years old

Veterinarian's Assistant: How old is Oreo?

3 years old

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

When he breathes it's like that when he shakes sometimes not all the time but sometimes when he's breathing he's shaking.
