Customer Question
My 5 yr old...

My 5 yr old basset will not eat. S

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?

My 5 yr old basset will not eat. This is week 3. He drinks and goes to bathroom. Vet says infection and is on antibiotics.

Veterinarian's Assistant: There are all sorts of infections the dog can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?

Th only thing out of the ordinary is a month ago the mosquito exterminator sprayed outside but we did not let Rocky out for over an hour.
