Customer Question
We have a 8week...

We have a 8week old puppy that is waking up and helping. And she just did it while she was awake and just standing. It looked as though she was going to throw up but didn't.

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

No she did eat quite a bit more food than she usually does she got fixed 3 days ago.

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

Mia

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

We are fostering her and another dog in her litter was sick recently
