Customer Question
My 10 yr old boxer...
My 10 yr old boxer had ketamine and Valium on Wednesday but isn't acting like himself. He's laying around a lot and sometimes his legs give out on him. He is also on antibiotics for a sinus infection or a possible bacterial infection of his eyes. Could his symptoms be the sedative still getting out of his system
