Customer Question
My dog is acting...

My dog is acting strange. Lethargic and could have a temp. We think he ate some poop yesterday but he was fine today.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if your dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?

Murphy age 8 approximately

Veterinarian's Assistant: How old is Murphy?

8 or so.

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

He's been having really bad anxiety lately. Shaking when stressed. This is unusual. He's a pom Chihuahua
