Customer Question

I have a very sick dog. He ate most of a chicken about a week ago. Since that time, I took him off food for 24 hours, started back up with broth and rice, which he is now refusing to eat. Today he ate a spoonful of pumpkin. He is drinking, but diarrhea is getting worse.
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: Rufus Age 8
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Rufus?
Customer: He has overeaten before and had stomach issues.
