Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

2) Was a fecal analysis performed? Was anything found?

3) Did he improve with the change of the diet?
4) If so, what changed? Any human food? new treats?
5) What medication is he on at this time?

7) Does he have a history of ingesting foreign bodies like toys?
8) How often is he vomiting?
