Customer Question
My 9 month old dog...
My 9 month old dog was treated for coccidia and giardia that he acquired from a new 13 week old puppy that we brought home. She had it so we treated both of them due to their close living arrangements. The coccidia in the little guy is gone but not the giardia so we started another round of treatment yesterday
JA: I'll do all I can to help. What seems to be the problem with the dog?
Customer: The older dog though since yesterday is very lethargic and does not want to eat or drink
JA: Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name?
Customer: this morning his stool was very watery
JA: Anything else I can tell the Veterinarian before I connect you two?
Customer: Barkley
JA: I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and connect you two.
