I have a 3 yr old golden retriever. Yesterday I came home

Customer Question

I have a 3 yr old golden retriever. Yesterday I came home and he had at some point during the day I'm not sure time thrown up twice. At. 1 am he had diarrhea and vomited again. He did this again at 4 am and hasn't vomited since but did have diarrhea once about 1030 am. I think he may have just picked up a bug, but I'm worried about his hydration he is barely drinking
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the dog eat anything unusual?
Customer: The only thing unusual was Monday night I had made chicken Apple sasuge and I dropped one on the floor that he ate before I could stop him
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?
Customer: No he's really healthy
