He has been losing weight, vomiting yellow mucous, I checked

Customer Question

He has been losing weight, vomiting yellow mucous, I checked his stool and I think he has worms I check it all the time but I think that's what I saw yesterday.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?
Customer: He is still very active alert and happy
