Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know what to do. What is the Silky Terrier's name?

Cozy

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

She is deaf. Very clinging and it's difficult to leave hear as she barks when she is alone. I finally had to get a bark collar as my neighbors were complaining i love her so but she is affecting my quality of life. She just had her physical and teeth cleaning. I'm miserable She gets a mile walk every day weather permitting. Am almost at the end of my rope. We have tried everything.
