How is Lyric this morning? Sorry I did not get your question yesterday. There is still a lot of flooding and traffic in Houston, so I didn't get home until late. I will get alerts faster if you respond back to the original post.

Lyric is doing better now she had to have emergency c sections Tuesday evening, a pup was stuck in the birth canal caused a jam up six pups lost nine survived huge litter, she was evidently resting so long inbetween due to exhaustion. Almost lost her. This was devastating. I'm just so glad I did not wait any longer or wait on a response from you. I looked to you for advice and almost lost my dog. I feel you gave me the worst advice possible.

This page will not let me change my rating. I wish to rate you as bad. Your supposed to be a doctor and the advice you gave was so damaging.
Expert:  Dr. John replied 1 month ago.

I am so sorry about losing the pups. The advice I gave is what any other vet would give. I did say that if she was showing any problems at all to get her to the vet immediately because there may be a problem. She was not showing any symptoms of a problem at that point. Again I am sorry for what you had to go through.
