Customer Question
My dog is not...

My dog is not himself. When he tries to move his bowels only liquid comes out or tiny soft pieces. He trembles. He is not eating much. I took him to am ER vet and the did an X-ray of stomach and they said no blockage. They gave me something for diarrhea and special digestive food and he seemed to be getting better. Then a few days later it started again.

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

He digs at blankets and pillows. Hides sometimes.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?

Not really. We were away from home for the holidays and just got back today. So I am going to take him to his regular dr. ASAP. He is being tested for Cushing’s.
