Dr Aaron :

Hello this is Dr. Aaron

Dr Aaron :

I can definitely understand your concern.

Dr Aaron :

Please let me know when you're available.

Customer:

Hello there Dr. Aaron

Dr Aaron :

Hello

Dr Aaron :

Is she still eating/drinking normally?

Customer:

she is drinking and has eaten today but I had to encourage her too.

Dr Aaron :

has she lost or gained weight recently?

Customer:

yes, she has lost some weight recently

Dr Aaron :

Given that she is 8 years old, losing a large amount of blood, crying, and has lost weight I would definitely be concerned about her.

Dr Aaron :

Do you have a vet nearby that could check her out today?

Customer:

No, I think the vets that I use is not open until tuesday. What should i do?

Dr Aaron :

Honestly, given what you're telling me, I would strongly recommend taking her to a vet today, if not tomorrow morning.

Dr Aaron :

If your vet isn't available, I would then recommend another nearby vet.

Dr Aaron :

I am concerned that something significant is going on and it is prudent to get her looked at.

Customer:

okay, thanks very much. I don't suppose you know of any vets in the west london area that is till open now

Dr Aaron :

Unfortunately I do not, but I would be more than happy to search online for you.

Customer:
