This answer was rated:

A couple of nights ago my 3 year old Westiepoo. What result will result.
JA: I'll do all I can to help. What seems to be the problem with the dog?
Customer: He crunched and ate a anail
JA: The Expert will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Archie
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Archie?
Customer: He has tummy upsets and often has bouts of no eating. But he recovers after a day or so. He was recently given medication for keeping fleas away. In the last two days he has fouled around the house, this is not usual. I took him for a walk this evening and he was quite happy to chase a ball but tired quite quickly.

Archie is improving. He particularly enjoyed his burger and rice. Only one ‘accident ‘ and he is generally much happier. Thank you for your help.
