Customer Question

He's cold, won't eat, doesn't seem to want to stand long. I put kayro syrup on his gums earlier they were white and now they are pink. He has a deficiency not able to absorb nutrients and I don't think his powder for his food is working anymore
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Korwynn 12
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Korwynn?
Customer: He's just on Panacare enzyme powder for his condition that is not working. He was fine yesterday
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.

He's gone downhill very quickly if his last meal was early evening yesterday and today he's lifeless. Dogs typically take a few days to go downhill with such severity.The fact that you mention his white gums, lifeless appearance and the fact that he's cold makes me worry that he's critical and needs to be under the care of a Veterinarian at an ER facility. I would be concerned that this could claim his life if he's not seen within the next few hours. If you do not have an ER facility that you're familiar with, I'll be happy to help you find one. Just reply with your city, state and zip code and I'll get to work finding one local to you.Did my response help to answer all of the questions that you had regarding your companion? If you have other questions, please reply and I’ll help you further.Once you're satisfied with our dialogue, please take the time to use the star rating system at the top of the page to leave a rating for me.

I have no money for a emergency vet due to my just being in the hospital for having lost my baby. I don't have a syringe and really want to try and get something in him
