Customer: replied 6 months ago.
i bought her a giant candycane raw hide bone from walmart, i was told that they had been recalled and that dogs were dying bc of pesticides found on them, i took the bone and threw it in the trash but from what i read it was affecting dogs very quickly and its been almost two weeks

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

How much blood have you seen? A spoonful, cupful, etc?

Can she keep water down?

Are her gums pink or white/pale? Moist or sticky?

If you press on her belly, any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?

Could she have eaten anything she should not have (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?

Any diarrhea?
