Customer Question
My 2 whippets are 5...
My 2 whippets are 5 months old. Sisters. Last week, for no clear reason they started throwing up- for 2 days. One more than the other. Just as we decided to take them to our local vet, they seemed to get much better. But now, even with a bland, restricted diet, they still have, on and off, (mostly on) diarreah.
Again, everytime we think about a Vet visit, they show big improvements.
They still have evergetic moments of play, and have always slept a lot. So, we don't think it's anything sinister.
I know they aren't at the brink of death - but a week with diarreah seems long.What do you think we should do?Thanks : )Matt
