Customer Question
10 mo. Old shih...

10 mo. Old shih tzu. Was given a couple oz of milk because she was constipated. In about 1.5 hrs she had two massive bowel movements. Then she vomited tremendous amounts of undigested food. She continued to vomit fluids off & on for at least 1/2 hr. She managed to drink about 1/3 cup water and fell asleep. Breathing is fine and no sign of fever. She doesn't want to eat anything. Should we continue to be concerned? She's resting.

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

She had sme ground beef seasoned with taco seasoning. Mid day

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

No. She's normally very good 3ater & good health.
