Customer Question

She woke me up early. Very restless. Little bit of shivering. Normally she shivers a lot when she has an upset tummy and the vomits but this morning just a lit bit of shivering. Then when I let her out she ate quite a bit of grass. Should I take her to the vet? She had some rawhide bone last night and I am worried about blockage. She does have bouts of indigestion and usually vomits then is fine
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the dog will be able to digest that. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?
Customer: No she is very healthy. Should I take her now or wait to see if she vomits
