Customer Question
5 month old mastiff mix...
5 month old mastiff mix puppies licked/tried to ingest a rotten hard boiled egg (left over from Easter 2015) that they found in the yard. I don't think they actually ate any of it, but the smell of it is nauseating! Should we get them to an emergency vet facility?

Forget this...you don't even have the right kind of animal "help these cats"??? Not trusting you
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Jo, Dog Veterinarian replied 2 years ago

Oh, no... I'm so sorry. I made the error as I was cutting and pasting on my phone where it was hard to see what I was doing. I am on my computer now, and I really do understand you are talking about puppies. Will you give me another chance?

My apologies. I'm really sorry to have disappointed you, but I completely understand. I would have reacted the same way in your situation.

I will contact customer service so you can arrange a refund.
