Customer Question

I am dog sitting, and just packing up to go home. The ***** ***** got into my bags and ate about a 1/4 bar of dark chocolate. I heard chocolate is very bad for dogs. Yes? What should I do?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Huck - age 14.
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Huck?
Customer: He seems to have a wheezing condition. Is taking some meds, but I don't know what for.
