Customer Question
He can't move Veterinarian's...

He can't move

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

Andre, 9.5 years

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

He's had off and on urinary issues. The sphincter of his bladder wasn't working properly on occasion.
