If I would of waited for your response I would have lost my dog, as it is she is hanging on and heavily sedated to prevent seasures!
Thank you but no thank you!
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Update: she had to be put to sleep because severe damage to her brain due to continuous seasures! Maybe this is a good service for other situations. Doctors and Vets should see their patients when needed
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Peter, Veterinarian replied 2 years ago

I am really sorry she was put to sleep. You are right, in emergency or critical conditions the best option is always going to see an ER veterinarian. I am sorry for your loss.
