Customer Question
She's not eating much...

She's not eating much but she is drinking water. She will eat table scraps,but I don't give it to her anymore. She vomited a little white spit. And her poop is dark brown and soft looking.what do I need to do to get her back eating her food?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What sort of animal are we talking about?

Shi tzu

Veterinarian's Assistant: Maybe I'm confused. I thought you had a problem with a pet. Is that correct?

Yes, I can't get her to eat her food.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the animal eat anything unusual?

No. She loves to eat the food that I eat. I know that she is not suppose to be eating what I eat. When she don't eat for a long period of time, she vomits white spit.

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. The Expert will know what to do. What is the's name and age?

WooWoo. Age2

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the animal?

Nothing more than I rescued her back in 2016.
