Customer Question

Hi, My dog got into the garbage last night around 8:00 when I turned to answer the phone. I caught him quickly but he had ate some coffee grounds, a few tablespoons maybe. Fast forward to 10:30 pm, before we went to bed I noticed that he took an extremely large drink of water but wasn't too concerned and went to bed. He woke me up about 4:15 to go out which is unusual. When we came downstairs he again took another huge drink of water and then went out side. He both peed and pooped came inside, wanted his usual treats and then took another drink. So we have been up for almost an hour now, he seems himself except for his excessive thirst. He has now laying down and is sleeping. He is a 10 1/2 old Beagle about 47 pounds.
