Customer Question
My Golden had a...

My Golden had a litter of 8 puppies on September 6th. She was eating fine, but over the last week we have noticed she is not eating and last night after she did eat (I mixed can food with the dry to try to get her to eat), she threw it up. I have never had a problem like this and am so concerned.

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

No not at all.

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

Not that I can think of, obviously she is getting very thin.

Have there been any changes to the diet? New food, including a change of flavors or protein source within the same brand? New treats? Bones? Has any human food been fed? Torn up toys or trash? Stressful changes to the environment?

I was looking to ask a veterinarian a question. I see you
I was looking to ask a veterinarian a question. I see you are a veterinarian assistant. Can I speak with a vet? I am going to take my puppy Leo to our vet tomorrow, hopefully if I can get in. Leo is a 8 month old Biewer Terrier. If you do not know what that is, he is from the Yorkshire terrier. For the past two nights he has thrown up his dinner about an hour after eating. Note: I have noticed for some time he burps pretty much overtime he finishes eating. He does not throw everything up. I am concerned because I googled, and read about food not making it to the stomach. He is fine in every other way. We had just come back from a long walk today when he threw up and also yesterday, not sure if that is related. Note: His stool has been normal, however today on our walk he took one normal formed and brown poop, but then went a second time and the stool was smaller, thin and yellow. I am worried … read more
