Customer Question

Wife called and said she is whining unable get up and appears to be in pain I should have prefaced this by saying it was our older lab... NOT the wife. [although... uhh never mind]
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help and. How old is and?
Customer: The wife??? Oops sorry. I kinda get carried away. The dog was brought here from Mexico with my daughter in 2006 I believe. White lab.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about and?
Customer: It was a almost a year old back then.

I'm so sorry that no one has reached out to help you prior to this moment. Can you tell me more about your girl?

1) Is she on any joint supplements?
2) Is she on any medication?
3) Is she able to rise and walk when helped into a standing position?
