Customer Question

5 month old mastiff mix puppies licked/tried to ingest a rotten hard boiled egg (left over from Easter 2015) that they found in the yard. I don't think they actually ate any of it, but the smell of it is nauseating! Should we get them to an emergency vet facility?

Oh, no... I'm so sorry. I made the error as I was cutting and pasting on my phone where it was hard to see what I was doing. I am on my computer now, and I really do understand you are talking about puppies. Will you give me another chance?
