Customer Question

He is usually happy and excited to go for a ride but no emotion is shown today all he is doing is sleeping won't eat barely drinking anything and shivering
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Hunter and age is unknown I'd say about 5-6
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Hunter?
Customer: He seems to be moving very slow today I gave him a bath yesterday like I always do once a month also has some spots on his skin that appear to be dry patches
