Hi. Oliver is a...

Hi. Oliver is a 4 year old dachshund. He udually has a good appetite (spoiled a bit---only eats human food and good dog treats). He's not overweight. He's been shaking like a vibratory. His insides are making gurgling sounds and he's been darting for 1/2 an hour now.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. The Expert will know what to do. What is the dog's name?

Oliver

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

He doesn't like dog food. He's usually very careful about not eating things he shouldnt.

Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Ask Your Own Dog Question

Have there been any changes to the diet? New food, including a change of flavors or protein source within the same brand? New treats? Bones? What human food has recently been fed? Torn up toys or trash? Stressful changes to the environment?

No stress toy knowledge. He didn't eat his food awhile ago (pieces of chicken and gyros). He's always very well taken care of, but today at 330 I realized I hadn't fed him this morning (family member I'll and I got distracted).

The phone rang several times; each time I answered, it disconnected. Oliver is still breathing strongly and his tummy is gurgling. He wants to be close to me and rest. The phone just rang and disconnected again, so not sure what to do about that. I guess I'll talk to my neighbor who has much more experience with dogs than myself.

It is disconnecting my end as well, sorry for the inconvenience, but if you give me your phone number I will be glad to call you direct right now ...
