Customer Question

hi, my dog for the last two nights has been panting and very clingy. He woke me up two nights ago as he was standing on my stomach. This is very strange behavior for him. He is a little over 14 years old. Last night he was panting, clingy and I noticed his heart seemed to be racing.
JA: IÂ’m sorry to hear that. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Clover
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Clover?
Customer: I don't think so. He seems fine other than that. Actually, he appears to be peeing a bit more as well. He has been diagnosed with a kidney stone about 3 years ago, but the vet was able to push it into his abdomen.
JA: OK. Got it. 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 then connect you two.
