Customer Question
My eleven month old...

My eleven month old puppy suddenly started limping for no apparent reason - he was in his overnight crate and when he first got out this morning, he had developed the limp overnight

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

We can't find anything, no blood, no apparent injury between his toes, no swelling. He was okay last night.

Veterinarian's Assistant: The Expert will know what to do. What is the puppy's name?

Charlie

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

He's usually very healthy, happy, loves to play!

Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pet today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have provided regarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? Which leg is he limping with? What breed is your puppy?
