Customer Question

My dog chocked when he eats or drinks! It seems like he can't swallow very well and sometimes throws up water after he's drank it, but I haven't ever seen him do it with food. He's on heart medications but it doesn't seem to help. He also developed a fever sometimes.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Expert will know if your dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: his name is ***** ***** he's about 8 but has done it for years and is over weight. Hes a chihuahua.
JA: What is the Chihuahua's name?
Customer: Bug for short Bugzy
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your Chihuahua?
Customer: No
