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. If you would rather wait for the Expert you had originally contacted, just let me know. Otherwise, I’ll be happy to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion? 1) What is Stimpy having difficulty moving? Any particular body part? 2) When did this begin? 3) Still eating and drinking? 4) Any pain?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
