Customer Question
He isn't eating his...

He isn't eating his food and and keeps acting like he needs to poopbut nothing comes out.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name and age?

Ramon and his is about 9 weeks.

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

I think part of it is I switched his dog food yesterday. The first one I bought was for adult dogs that were small breeds. The new one is for puppies of large breeds.
