Dr. Smart had Jerry come to the office right away, and Dr. Smart performed a bacterial stool culture for (salmonella) gastroenteritis. Jerry was home to rest. Dr. Smart told Jerry that the symptoms should subside within five to seven days. Jerry was told for dehydration and to call immediately if he was getting any better.
