Customer Question
Our dog got into...

Our dog got into a big jar of peanut butter and a partial loaf of bread. She is lethargic, bloated and her eyes are swollen.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name and age?

Selena and she's about 2. She 50 lbs

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

We rescued her three weeks ago. She has been vet checked and is good. She did have tapeworm when we got her.

She may have eaten a piece of cardboard as well from a box of crackers. She seems bloated.
