Hello and thank you for your question. It appears that the Expert you were hoping to speak with is not currently available. I have stepped in to assist you in their absence so that you have a prompt reply to your question. If you would rather wait for the Expert you had originally contacted, just let me know. Otherwise, I’ll be happy to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?1) Was it the people in the house that are getting over a virus? 2) How old is Dolph? 3) When was Dolph last vaccinated? 4) How long have you had him? 5) Any recent visits to petsmart, dog parks, etc? 6) What is his temperature? 7) Any blood in the vomit or diarrhea? 8) When was his last fecal exam? 9) Any history of chewing up toys? Eating human food? Any recent change in diet?
