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 Blue 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? Are you seeing any movement with his legs? Is he showing any signs of pain? Any excessive activity noted before he started showing those signs?
