Customer Question

I just purchase a pitbull that supposed to be 3 weeks. My puppy is not walking yet however he is crawling. His previous owner feed him Similac. I purchase formula from the pet shop and he will not drink the formula. It's a little over 12 hours that he didn't eat. What to do?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?
Customer: I observed my puppy and there is nothing wrong with his foot
JA: What is the dog's name?
Customer: His name is Champ
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Champ?
Customer: He will not drink his formula from a bottle
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.
