A 9-year-old 16.2-kg (35.6-lb) neutered female Chow Chow was referred to a veterinary teaching hospital for investigation of inappetence, progressive weight loss, and diarrhea during the preceding month as well as vomiting for 7 days. The dog had been treated with antimicrobials by the referring veterinarian, but no change in clinical status was reported.

On physical examination, the dog was alert and responsive, had a body condition score of 3/9 and rectal temperature of 38.9°C (102.0°F), and was minimally dehydrated (approx 6%). However, the dog's mucous membranes were still pink and moist, and the capillary refill time was < 1
