Customer Question
Hello. Our 18-month old...

Hello. Our 18-month old Yorkie has had a couple of bouts of diarrhoea since this morning and has been very lethargic. He just had little hard food to eat at 4pm, but has had 3 bouts of been vomiting and 3 bouts of vomiting in the last 10 minutes.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?

No. Has otherwise been in good health. Been this way since eating a beef snack since yesterday.
