Customer Question
Hi my name is...

Hi my name is Isabel and I have Chihuahua his name is ***** ***** he is 7yrs old and yesterday his left back leg I noticed that he was limping and his leg is hurting, but he is eating and drinking water but is hard for him to walk. He won't let me touch it, don't know what to do.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?

I checked his foot but there is nothing no cuts at all.

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the Chihuahua's name?

Blacky

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

He has attacks and he is unable to walk he gets them once a year, I took him to the vets and they told me he had a liver problem and that he needed to eat liver food for the rest of his life.
