Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the kitten's name?

Gracie

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Gracie?

No she is in perfect! She has been fixed.

I don't think peroxide is likely to hurt, though it could bleach her hair color a bit and I think there might be some better option. Is it something you would be able to get a picture of to upload?

I want to know is this site going to keep charging me? I have a Vet but it is the weekend, so I do not want to call them.
Cat Veterinarian: Dr. Beth, Cat Veterinarian replied 8 months ago

I am not showing that you have a membership, so it should just be a one time cost.

I am not paying $28.00 for a phone call. Thank you for your time. I will bring her to my Vet. I have Pet Insurance. Thank you for your time, I did not know this was a fee more then $5.00.
Cat Veterinarian: Dr. Beth, Cat Veterinarian replied 8 months ago

The phone call is the higher price than plain chat - and is optional, the site offers it automatically. If you'd like, I can flag customer service to cancel the whole request.
