Customer Question
I rearranged my home...

I rearranged my home, moving and cleaning a lot of things around, and I think my beagle/Springer may have eaten something. He has been 'racing's for a couple of hours, but hasn't thrown up. His lower belly feels a little harder than normal and he pulls his tail down when I touch it even lightly. This is not normal for him.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if your dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?

Winston Churchill, he is 2.

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

He was walking gingerly, as if he was tender, earlier, but that seems to have subsided.
