Customer Question
Our black lab keeps...

Our black lab keeps throwing up. Started last night. No other signs of distress.

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 we are aware of. He has a sensitive stomach and has been know to steal socks before and eat them, but has always just thrown those up or passed them.

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

Oliver he will be 4 in August. He is about 100lbs

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

Not that I can think of
