Customer Question
Both of my dogs...

Both of my dogs, 3 yr old pekepoo and 2 yr old golden stayed at a sitters house a week ago. The day after they got home, they started having diarrhea and were vomiting. The vomiting has stopped. I tried a 24 hr fast and then restarted them on boiled chicken/rice mix. That was 2 days ago. Now their diarrhea has taken an orange coloring. Aside from their stool, you wouldn't otherwise know that they're sick. They're still very active, drinking and playing.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did your Golden eat anything unusual?

The sitter gave him a new type of bone. That had some sort of flavoring in the center. Aside from that, I don't believe so.

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the Golden's name?

Dash

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Dash?

No, but there's 2dogs. Dash and Maggie. Same symptoms.

1) What type of bone was this?

2) Have there been any changes to the diet? New food? New treats? Has any human food been fed? Torn up toys? Stressful changes to the environment?

3) Can you share a picture of the stool?

4) Have any diagnostics been performed by your vet?

5) Have any medications or supplements been tried aside from the chicken and rice?
