Customer Question
My dog has become extremely...
My dog has become extremely lethargic and squeeled a bit when I tried to pick him up. At first I thought it was his leg, but I am leaning more towards it being a stomach issue. We recently moved and have loads of acorns in the backyard which is fairly big and fenced in. I have noticed him nibbling on them but cannot say with certainty if or how many he may have eaten. What can I do!?!? I am extremely scared after reading about poisoning and kidney failure
