My dog had a front leg amputation 6 months ago due to fast

Customer Question

Hello, my dog had a front leg amputation 6 months ago due to fast growing spindle cell tumor. (This popped up right after a Rabies vaccine last year), she's been happy, energetic and fine ever since the amputation, until last Thurs when we noticed her eyes got extremely red, some discharge too, she got lethargic and lost her appetite. She ate a little today but still no energy and extremely red eyes. We have the soonest vet appointment we can get on Wed morning, can you tell me your thoughts?
JA: I'll do all I can to help. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?
Customer: Not really... This is very out of the ordinary for her

I am Dr. Snow, and I can try to help you. I would like to ask a few questions first. How old is she? Is she pawing or rubbing at her eyes? Any vomiting or diarrhea?
