Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question today. Just like an in person consult, I have a few questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible.....

Has Dexter had any changes in food, treats or people food?

How long has he been doing this?

How is he acting otherwise?

Does this seem to happen more often at any time of the day or is it random?
