Customer Question
Rosco is a Jack...

Rosco is a Jack Russel. His heart is racing, he can breath, he stopped eating, when he did eat he vomited it all up, his abdomen seems to have become enlarged, and he can't sleep.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the Jack?

His teeth are really bad.

Hi there,

Thank you for your question regarding your boy Rosco. Did these symptoms just start tonight? How old is he? Is there anything he could have gotten into? Can he keep water down?

I will wait to hear from you,

Dr E
