I can't pay. Sorry ...

I can't pay. Sorry

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the dog?

He is 11years old chihuahua. Very lethargic and have a hard time laying down. Sits or stands for a long time without a movement. If I grab him, he screams. If I get too close he screams too. He has considerably slow down. Thanks so much

Veterinarian's Assistant: Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help the Chihuahua. What is the Chihuahua's name and age?

Lulu 11

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the Chihuahua's name?

Lulu

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Lulu?

He had teeth extraction few years ago. He has lost a lot of weight. Only 6 pounds.
