Customer: Hello, my dog has a swollen toe, that looks red and a little infected. I’d like to see about getting him some antibiotics
JA: Hi there. I'll do all I can to help. Have you spoken to a vet about the infection yet? How long has this been going on with the dog?

JA: What's the dog's name and age?
Customer: Loki. He is a year and 4 months. Breed is a Weimaraner
