Customer Question

My grandmas dog committed this morning but has not since. He is shaking, walking slowly, hunched back, and gagging occasionally. He is a chiuhwa and he is 3.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?
Customer: When I grabbed his front right paw he snapped at me.
JA: What is the dog's name?
Customer: Tanner
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Tanner?
Customer: He had pancreatic problems 2 years ago. He weighs about 6pounds maybe.
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.

Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

1) What does Tanner normally receive as far as food?
2) Any human food?
3) Any new treats?
4) Any recent stress like a move or groom?
5) Any diarrhea?
