Customer Question
My Maltese has diarrhea...

My Maltese has diarrhea for 4days and threw up one day. Shakes in upper part of body

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

We don’t think so unles something at the groomers. We are cleaning up lots of mess’s. Poor little guy. He is 8.

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name?

Tucker

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

The throw is mostly white/yellow foam/bubble stuff.
