Customer Question
I have a two...

I have a two year old Australian Shepherd that will not ear her dry food. In the last two weeks she has had diarrhea and then throw up. Medication took care of these problems, but now she will not eat the dry food. I have been giving her boiled chicken. She will eat that and treats.

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 I know of. She tries to pick up everything off the street when we are taking our walk

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

Sidney

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

No,, everything else is normal

Welcome to JustAnswer.com! My name is***** and I have been a licensed veterinarian for 10 years. I would be happy to answer your question. I'm sorry to hear that Sidney isn't eating her dry food. I wonder if she's associating the food with feeling sick. What medications were given that took care of the vomiting and diarrhea?
