Customer Question

Hi. I have a 9 year old bichon. For the past two nights he vomited, then left the room to defecate on the tv room floor. This is not like him at all.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the Bichon eat anything unusual?
Customer: Not that I know of. Maybe a piece of burger, but that is not unusual
JA: OK. The Expert will know what to do. What is the Bichon's name?
Customer: Zak
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Zak?
Customer: He is approx 15 lbs and has some hip issues from time to time

Have there been any changes to the diet? New food? New treats? Bones? Human food? Torn up toys? Stressful changes to the environment?

Is he on any medications at this time?
