Customer Question

My dog ate a big piece of mulch yesterday. She is now acting very to herself and isnt playing. She is just laying around sleeping. When I call her she doesnt come to me.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if your dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: She is a border collie mix and is 1 and 1/2 years old. I am wondering if its ok to wait till tomorrow to see vet?
JA: What is the Border collie's name?
Customer: Sadie
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Sadie?
Customer: No. She is just a very active dog but hasnt been like that today
