Customer Question
Hi! He's very very...

Hi! He's very very sleepy and lethargic, he barely ate this morning and his front right paw is swollen

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. The Expert will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?

His name is ***** ***** we got him yesterday so I don't know how old he is

Veterinarian's Assistant: How old is Leo?

I'm guessing between 5-8 months

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Leo?

He was found off the street with his brother
