Presenting complaint- vomits occasionally, about once per day every morning, for years. Otherwise normal, moderately overweight husky.
Me- "What does she eat?"
Client- "Only the food you told me to feed her. Oh, and peanut butter dog bones. Jerky strips. That's all. The occasional table scrap. But that's all. Sometimes she doesn't eat in the morning, though,"
Me- "So what do you do then?"
Client- "Then I add some canned food."
Client- "Grocery O'Garbagington's meaty chunks. But only a little in the morning."
Me- "Maybe that's why your dog is throwing up every morning."
Client- "Oh, no. You're wrong. The lady at the pet food store told me to feed this."
And where did the dog food salesman get her veterinary degree?
