Veterinarian Louise Beyea tries to listen to the heartbeat of Louie, a nearly-2-year-old Pomeranian, as veterinary technician specialist Emily Regier holds him recently at Affiliated Emergency Veterinary Service. Louie’s owner brought him in to the clinic when the dog suddenly developed muscle tremors and a high temperature, symptoms consistent with eating something moldy.
