JA: Hi. How can I help?
Customer: I have a 4 month old Cockerpoo who has on going diarrhea problem where his deposit is usually the consistency of a cow pat and has on ocassions spots of blood.
JA: I'll do all I can to help. What is the dog's name?
Customer: His name is ***** ***** the recent Corona lockdown he was under the care of our local vet and has been given a cause of antibiotics as well as a faecal sample the result of which was negative.
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Bailey?
Customer: He has been fed on Royal Canin Puppy and the ingredients have been relayed to the vet who promised but has not got back to me. I have tried six times to make an appointment today and have not been able to get past the voice mail. I am now worried as last night he had a particularly bad episode with the faeces more like liquid and the dog plainly distressed at 2.00am not to mention me!!
