We just got a dog from the pound. she was given shots before we brought her home plus some medicine shot up her nose. She started vomiting and now has diarrhea with blood.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the dog eat anything unusual?

No she hasn't eaten anything.

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

We hadn't even named her yet. \We just picked her up on Sat. They think she is about 2 yrs. old.

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

Snowball

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

No we just got her.
