Customer Question
Our pug 6 years...

Our pug 6 years old , female is having runny stool ,she has soiled in the house numerous times . she has vomited a few times .

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the dog eat anything unusual?

She doesn't seem too lethargic and we have had her on hills prescription diet I/d . yes the rug is ruined from her but she is more important . we are thinking maybe its the new food

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?

We have stopped feeding her today and very little water that seemed to help , we also have given her a charcoal tablet from the local vet

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name?
