Customer Question
I have an 11...

I have an 11 year old American Eskimo/border collie mix who weighs 27 pounds. It’s not unusual for her to go a day without pooping, but she went several days without, then yesterday she pooped twice and seemed to be struggling. It took a long time. Today she pooped twice again and the second time there was blood on the poop. What’s going on? We’re on a rv-big trip and 600 miles from home.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know what to do about this bleeding. I'll connect you ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?

She recently developed a small growth on her lower lip. Our vet checked it and said just to watch it.

OBE. I was led to believe that I was going to get a quick response to my question. After going through the signup and paying my five dollars, THEN they tell me if I want an immediate answer instead of up to a one day delay, I had to pay an additional $27. What a scam. A half hour later we had her at a local vet. Do you really want to be associated with an outfit like this?!
