Customer Question
My 5mth old puppy...

My 5mth old puppy keeps getting very sick. Every two or three weeks, she has severe diarrhea and then vomiting. The vet can't find the cause.

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

No. This is chronic and the episodes are coming closer together. The vet has.changed her diet, but.that isnt working

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. The Expert will know what to do. What is the puppy's name?

Baylee

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Baylee?

Shelter dog. We got her at 3months, and this the 5th major episode since we got her.

The vet is now testing her for addisons. What will that mean for long term care?
