Hi,Welcome to JustAnswer. I am a licensed veterinarian and I'd like to help you and Frankie tonight.It is excellent that you will be having Frankie examined by your vet tomorrow, but let's make sure he is safe overnight.You mentioned that he is able to walk. . .just walking funny. . .correct?Is he breathing OK?Would you check the color of his gums? They should be moist and pink, and when you push on them they should blanch with the color returning in 2 seconds or less.Does Frankie have any other symptoms like vomiting or coughing?

No other symptoms

If Frankie's gum color is OK, and he is breathing OK, then this is not an emergency.I'm sorry that you are feeling like we are a scam. because that is not the truth. You shouldn't be being charged any more than your original deposit. . .and I and my advice are worth it. . .lots of education and experience!
