Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?1) When did Bailey ingest the ambien? 2) Any vomiting seen since that time?

Hello and thank you for your question. It appears that the Expert you were hoping to speak with is not currently available. I have stepped in to assist you in their absence so that you have a prompt reply to your question. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?1) Are his aggressive outbursts toward people, pets or both? 2) Is there any time that he's not acting aggressive or agitated? 3) Does he use the litter box regularly? 4) Is he on any medications? 5) Has a physical exam been performed to determine if there's an underlying cause for the aggression? 6) I assume that his family surrendered him because of this aggression, is this correct?
