I just came online and saw your question about Kenzie. How is she doing now?

Is Kinzie an older dog, or a puppy? This sounds like she is having a seizure, or "syncope" (not enough oxygen to her brain), or low blood sugar.

SHE'S 13+ YEARS OLD. SHE'S JUST HANGING IN MY ARMS LIKE SHES DYING. IF I MOVE HER AT ALL SHE HAS A JERKING REACTION AND HER BREATH SMELLS LIKE SHIT!
Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

Can you get her to a veterinarian? That would be best. She may have gotten into something that is making her sick, she may be having a stroke or a seizure or have a heart arrhythmia.

You can try rubbing some Karo syrup onto her gums to raise her blood sugar. That will help only if this is low blood sugar.

If you look at her gums, are they pink or are they pale?

You can contact the customer service folks on the drop down menu if you feel you are unfairly charged; I do not have access to that information. I am just a veterinarian trying to help and to answer your questions.

IM NOT PAYING YOU $28. FOR A PHONE CALL!!
Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

No, you are not. You only get charged for a phone call if I send you an official offer, which I won't do because I can't make calls for the website.

I GOT NO HELP AND YOU BETTER NOT CHARGE MY CHARGECARD!!!!!
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
IF I COULD HAVE GOTTEN HER TO A VET AT 5 AM I WOULDNT HAVE CONTACTED YOU!! YOU SAID THE CHARGE WAS $20.00 AND THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN YOU WANTED A PHONE CALL FOR $28!!! WHAT A SCAM!!!
Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

As I said before, I have no access to charges and payments. I did not tell you anything about charges, and I did not offer a phone call. I am just a veterinarian, who works for the website and and answers questions. When you post here, I am the only one who sees it. I have no access to payment information.

If you have any questions about payments, please contact customer service on the drop down menu.

If you have any questions about Kenzie, I would be happy to help.
