I am looking after my daughter's tea cup poodle and I am so

Customer Question

I am looking after my daughter's tea cup poodle and I am so afraid because she ate sand on our beach walk this morning and she seems to be in pain. She vomited sand.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the poodle?
Customer: She is only 7 months old and weighs 4 lbs
