I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Max, please?

Regrefully, "acting like he can't breathe" is unclear to me. Can you clarify his behavior?

I regret that my state board of veterinary examiners doesn't allow me to speak to customers by phone in this venue but other experts in this category may be able to assist you in this regard. Please let me know if you'd like another expert to do so and I'll opt out of this conversation. Please stay in the conversation if you wish.
