Customer: I boarded her at her doggie day care for 4 days. I picked her up Saturday and she seemed quiet until we got home then very active and wanting to play. I fed her with normal brand of wet dog food but it was a new flavor. I don't know it that upset her stomach or not. She started acting uncomfortable around 4:00 am. I took her outside and she had terrible diarrhea. Has dry heaved about 4 times since this morning.
