But before I can start I need a little more information to make things clearer for me, so could you please answer the following :

1. Is Sophie showing any adverse symptoms of any sort at present ?

I called the local emergency vet. I will not be needing your services.

I never really received a timely response. I do not wish to be billed more than the $5 you have already charged me. I should not have allowed that. Please do not charge me any more.

My role here is answer any veterinary questions. Sadly I do not have access to the site admin and billing.

However I will be glad to contact the customer care team on your behalf.
