Customer Question
He is making hiccuping/chocking...

He is making hiccuping/chocking sounds and is shaking. I noticed it when she has come down the stairs. She is a small terrier poddle type.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name and age?

Her name is ***** ***** she is approximatly 3.5 - 3 years old.

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

She has been farting constantly and is not eating. It is my mothers dog. I have only had her for a week.

She is transitioning from my elderly mother (who has been placed in a senior home). My mother fed her human food. I have been trying to feed her meat. She is a small poodle/terrier mix, about 3.5 y/o. I've noticed that she can get like this after running down the stairs.
