Customer Question
Please help. I have...

Please help. I have a four month old miniature schnauzer puppy that is behind a couple weeks on his second set of shots. For the past two days, there has been constant vomiting of clear liquid, black, tar like stool (some solid, some not) lack of energy and no eating. He does drink water on his own thank goodness. He got into the kitty box a couple of days ago and ate alot of kitty litter poop!

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if the puppy will be able to digest that. What is the Miniature Schnauzer's name?

TUCKER

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

He is also running a low fever

What is Tucker's temperature currently?

Aside from the cat litter, have there been any changes to the diet? New food, including a change of flavors or protein source within the same brand? New treats? Bones? Has any human food been fed in the last few days (even if your pet regularly receives it)? Torn up toys or trash? Stressful changes to the environment? Addition of medication? Toxin ingestion?
