Customer Question
Keira, a staffordshire bull...

Keira, a staffordshire bull terrier, she 7, had an intestinal biopsy 2 weeks ago. Determined she has lymphamegestasis (sp?) and is on prednisone flagyl Plavix and b12 injection (monthly). She has abdominal bloat going on and it's been determined before it's due to her condition we're trying to get under control. However today it seems more so than before and concentrated on left side more. No trouble breathing, eating/drinking normally or more so due to steroids and stool is getting firmer than it has been.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?

Keira

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

I think I covered it all
