Customer Question

Our 13 year old female shih tzu came home from the kennel on 7/4 after having spent 2 weeks there while we were on vacation. Last night (7/6) she threw up twice and today she has had a little bloody diarrhea. She is a nervous dog and there were some storms while we were gone. She has had her vaccinations, but we are concerned about her. She is drinking plenty of water but picking at her food and refusing her treats.
