Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

1) Was Coda able to lay down and rest this past evening?
2) Is he on any regular medications?
3) Where did you guys walk yesterday? Sidewalk? Pavement? Grass?
