She was sick Saturday...

She was sick Saturday diarrhea and vomiting. Withheld food for a day. Started her back on solid slowly. Feces were normal then. Resumed with normal food yesterday. She seems fine behaviour wise. She had ti o go out early in morning and the only thing that came out was red liquid (blood) only. No change in normal behaviour from her.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What sort of animal are we talking about?

Aussie shepherd.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Maybe I'm confused. I thought you had a problem with a pet. Is that correct?

LOL. Australian shepherd dog

Veterinarian's Assistant: Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the Shepherd eat anything unusual?

Not to my knowledge before hand. She does run around on our walks and finds squirts peanut stashes and eats them. The day she was sick, she had been left alone at home, upon my return I notice she w had been sick on the cae rpet and cleaned it up( I think it was poo)

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the Shepherd's name and age?

Gypsy, 5 years old

Veterinarian's Assistant: How old is Gypsy?

5 years old

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

No other conditions Good health ,active and happy
