Customer Question

I have a 3 yr old, 80 kilo, neutered male leonberger.
Good health, except, he insists on eating garden plants and shrubs, in particular, our mulberry bush, which is just coming into fruit.
He is totally spoils, what Harvey needs, Harvey gets, but, at the moment is totally lethargic, warm nose and ears, and a retracted tummy, little loose with poo.
Am wondering if he's poised himself, so, have now put him on boiled chicken and rice for next few days.
Any other recommendations?

Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am sorry to hear about your dog. Has he had any vomiting? Is his appetite normal? Does he have a history of eating other things such as toys/rocks/socks/etc.? Do you have a thermometer at home to take his temperature?
