Customer: replied 11 months ago.
off and on for the last couple of months seemed like he had a stroke maybe or something once but he would get up and go outside but not very far looked at his poop and it looked good and there is no red in his pee. he has been throwing up off and on been feeding him some burger with his food so he had been eating that and been giving him some off that Dave's bread with the seeds in it when he will not eat the other. he has always drank alot of water. He is laying around more than he use too but no whining or crying so not showing any pain. His nose has gotten with big cracks on it so been rubbing vasiline on it
