Customer Question
I have a 2...

I have a 2 year old dachshund and just recently got a 4 month old kitten. My dog has always slept with me between my legs and now the kitten sleeps on my shoulder. The dog seems to be jealous about this. In the middle of the night he get up and poop and pee in the livingroom. They seem to get along during the day just fine. I have also caught her eating the cat poop. What can I do about this?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help your dachshund. What is the dachshund's name?

Her name is*****: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Squirmy?

Not that I can think of
