Customer Question

My boston has some throw up fits and today's was especially bad. He hasn't been right since. Took him to the vet and did x-rays and blood work. X-rays show nothing...waiting on the blood work tomorrow.... he's still breathing quickly but shallow and shaking
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the dog eat anything unusual?
Customer: No
JA: OK. The Veterinarian will know what to do. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Bentley and 10 months and 6 days
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Bentley?
Customer: This is the only thing out of the norm with him

Did they take X-rays of Bentley's chest? Vomiting can be a risk factor for aspiration pneumonia and with his shallow breathing this would be my first concern. If they did not take X-rays of his chest, then they should when they see him tomorrow.
