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? Has any human food been fed? Torn up toys or trash? Stressful changes to the environment?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
None of the changes you addressed. She has settled down since the diarrhea episode and seems to be not panting and shaking for the last half hour. Seems to be at rest.
Dog Specialist: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 8 months ago

Since she is now improved, do you need additional support this evening?
