Hello I am Dr. Joey. Thanks for trusting me to help you and your pet today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 15 years of experience. I look forward to working with you.

I might need a bit more information in order to get you the best answer possible:

1)Is the atenolol a new medication for him, or has he been on this a while?

2)What do you mean by "since we got rid of the food"? (was there old/spoiled food available or did you change his diet?)

3)Is the behavior a crouch and vomit or heave; or is he coughing?

4) Any changes in appetite or stool issues (constipation versus diarrhea)? Or any other health problems.

Thank you for answer my questions.
