Customer Question
My dog seems to...

My dog seems to be hyper sensitive and fearful of sounds inside the house. He got Trifexis on 1 Sep and seemed fine 3 days ago. In addition I suspect mice in the house and have pet/kid safe Tomcat poison containers, but haven't replaced them for abt 6 mos. Do you have any idea what I should do?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Did you see what your dog ate?

I feed him combo of hard and soft Pedigree. Same as before. I did note when I was out the bathroom rugs were disrupted. I think he was chasing something

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

No he was checked out by a vet last mo and was fine
