Customer Question

our two little dogs were in the back yard. They were attracted to something. That something looked like a sick rat--was barely moving. I shouted the dogs so they would get away. I don't know if the animal bit either dog--they didn't yelp. But I'm concerned they might have gotten bitten. What should I do?
