Customer Question
She is crying when...

She is crying when she lies down. She has vomited some. While we were away today, she vomitted and I noticed it had black hair or fur. She also pooped. She normally doesn't have accidents. The stool was solid. Yesterday, it had mucus.

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

Not that I'm aware of. She may have found something outside.

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

Her name is ***** ***** is eight.

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

I can't thinkd of anything.

Hi Dr. W here. I'm sorry to hear that :( Do you know where the fur came from? Is her own hair black or did she eat a small animal?

Her fur is buff. There was a dog here with black fur, but I don't think she would eat his fur. She may have gotten ahold of a small animal, but it's dark outside and I can't see.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I'll wait and takd her to the vet. I was told this was going to cost $5 and then was charged $19. I'd rather not spend anymore for something that may not take care of the problme.

I understand. I think you can request a refund so you won't be charged.
