Customer Question
I have a Westie...

I have a Westie and I'm just guessing maybe he ate chicken poop. My son had him today and he has chickens running around where he lives. Otto my dog is exploding with watery diarrhea . He is embarrassed about it. He hasn't eaten dinner and not much water.

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

His name is ***** ***** he is 8 1/2

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

He has all his shots. He also ate cat poop last week. What is with dogs eating this crap?

Chicken feces aside, have there been any changes to the diet? New food, including a change of flavors or protein source within the same brand? New treats? Bones? Has any human food been fed? Torn up toys or trash? Stressful changes to the environment? Addition of medication?

Any vomiting thus far?
