Customer Question
She won't eat or...

She won't eat or drink. Loosing weight.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What sort of animal are we talking about?

Mix of dashound and poodle maybe. I just read the info and I just begin giving her an electrolye solution to fight against dehydration

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. Problems with drinking can be serious. I'm glad you noticed it. The Expert will know what to do. What is the poodle's name and age?

Thelma is 10 weeks old. She didn't get sick until we gave her the second dose of worm medicine

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

No, that's pretty much it
