Customer Question
My dog has stopped...

My dog has stopped eating her normal food. We have tried a different kind of food along with different treats and she won't eat.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the dog's name and age?

Leia and she is 8 years old. She is a yellow lab and was about 70 lbs. but I think she has lost some weight with this problem

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

We gave her worming medicine thinking that it may be worms. This morning when I put her out there was diarrhea in her bed.
