Customer
Now

Good morning. What is his name? What breed of dog is he?

Customer
His name is chester
Customer
His is a mixed. Breed , boxer , lab, American terrier

Thank you so much. has Chester vomited? Is he eating and drinking? Is he bright and alert?

Customer
Just woke up no issues noted
Customer
Seems ok

Very good. I suspect that Chester has a bit of an upset stomach. I am not too concerned at this point. I would recommend doing the following:

Let’s give Pepcid AC at 1 X 10mg tablet per 20 pounds twice daily. This is Famotidine and it decreases the acid in the stomach.

Just put on the finger's tip and place it on the back of the tongue, then hold the mouth closed till swallows.

I would continue to feed Chester as usual. Please update me this afternoon.

Paul
