Customer Question
He came in from...

He came in from being outside and had a chemical smell on his breath, almost like burning plastic or something, hard to describe but I noticed it right away and even pout my nose right in his mouth and it was very prevalent there too. Got very concerned and went out to see if I could determine what he might have gotten in to. Could not find anything and then quickly the smell turned to more like a poop smell. Confusing!!!

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Burns are certainly painful. Let's see what the Veterinarian has to say. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?

I think you may have responded to a different thread
