Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

I am very sorry to see that no one has reached out to you before now. Can you give me an updated on your companion? Has the vomiting resolved? Is the breathing labored? Is he under treatment at a clinic at which you're employed?
