Customer Question
We believe our 5...

We believe our 5 year 14 lb rat terrier just developed symptoms of shaking, lethargy, and vomiting. We are in Todos Santos BCS. We plan on taking her to a vet in La Paz in the AM.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the Rat Terrier?

Last year we lost a dog here to kidney failure
