Wow, cool that I can chat with someone!

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the matter with the dog?

I have a 10 year old Boston Terrier who has really upped her water consumption in the past month. Tonight, she drank so much that she threw up. She's also shivering.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the dog eat anything unusual?

It was really just water coming back up, mixed with some mucus. I don't think she ate anything unusual, she's just been in our yard. I think it's the thirst that has me most concerned, as the vomiting has only happened once so far.

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

I don't think so. Excessive thirst, shivering, and some lethargy.

Hi.

Dr. Paul Brazzell

I am so sorry that you had to wait so long for an answer.

Are you still there? I would be happy to help you.

Increased thirst is a complex problem. Would you like to chat by phone?

Ahh, I see now that a phone call is an additional $28. I appreciate your help, but this model doesn’t work for me. I need to ask for a refund and handle this locally. Thanks again for your time.
