Customer: Bandit, he is a 6 year old boxer...
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Bandit?
Customer: a couple months ago he was poked in the same eye with a stick...took a while to heal; also when he was two he had a spontaneous phenumothorax???? had to have air from his lung sucked out...also has a narrowed aorta

Do you prefer to share a picture when he wakes?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
How would one typically share a picture with you? I would have to take it with my he is not letting touch his eye so difficult to see the redness as it seems like he wants to just keep it closed or squinting mostly.
