Customer Question
She ate part of...

She ate part of a heat pack. I’m trying to decide if I need to get her checked out by a vet tonight

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

Her name is ***** *****’s 3

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Mack?

She threw up once. She’s moving more slowly than usual but is able to eat. I took her out to pee and there were no problems
