Thank you for following up on my question.

However, I was hoping that this website would be more efficient and would possibly save me some money so I wouldn't have to call Animal Poison Control for $80.

Luckily, I was able to obtain an answer from my vet after 15 minutes (because they were performing surgery).

This service sounds like it might be interesting if I didn't need an immediate response and was willing to wait several days.

The concept is good, but if you really want business, you'll need experts on staff 24/7; then you'd definitely have my business and many others too.

Luckily I was able to contact my vet after 15 minutes and get the answer that I needed. This was not a situation where I could wait for an answer.

Was this answer helpful?
