I got a new...

I got a new puppy yesterday and he has lose stools and vomiting. My older dig is starting to show signs. Both are happy and still drinking

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. Only the food I was given by the breeder. Although it is possible he nibble the other dogs food while my back was turned.

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