My dog has been throwing up since this afternoon.

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

Not that I know of. We were away for a few hours and he hadn't been feeling well before we left.

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. The Expert will know what to do. What is your dog's name and age?

Spot is 14

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

For an older dog he is in very good shape. This is unusual for him to be sick like this.
