Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question today. Just like an in person consult, I have some questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible...

Is it a front or rear leg that is bothering him?

What state do you live in?

Does he now, or has he ever had tick exposure?
