Customer Question
My dog cries and...

My dog cries and seems to have discomfort eating. I came home this evening and he wasn's himself. I thought his leg was hurting due to history of a fatty tissue mass. He had surgery 1 1/2 years ago and i think it's growing back. I gave him treats but he cries and makes funny noises as if he has a hard time swallong

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The noise must be worrying. I'll connect you to the Veterinarian. What is the dog's name?

Brewster

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

No. Brewster 7 years old

After feeding him, his spirits seemed to have lifted, wagging his tail more but not back to 100%. Still would like to know your thoughts on this
Customer reply replied 6 months ago

What Customers are Saying:

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.
