Customer Question

My 7 yr. old Lab will not eat her food. It is a real struggle. She will eat treats and pee's and poop's and plays and otherwise acts fine. She has always been a slow eater but with two other dogs, I can't allow her to eat whenever she wants.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Her name is Coraline.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Coraline?
Customer: Well, she did choke on a pig ear on Thursday.
