I have a 12 yr old Chihuahua who stopped eating on Sunday.

Customer Question
She will drink water....
I have a 12 yr old Chihuahua who stopped eating on Sunday. She will drink water. She urinates daily. She had diarrhea and vomited on Sunday but not since then. She doesn't like to move much. She will not eat ground beef and rice or anything.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the dog eat anything unusual?
Customer: Not that I know of. But I took her to a friend's house on Sunday.
JA: OK. The Veterinarian will know what to do. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Mitten
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Mitten?
Customer: She has always been a healthy dog. She weighs 5 - 6 pounds.

2) When was bloodwork last run on Mitten?
