Customer Question
My 16 year old...

My 16 year old vet is failing. We live in Nome, AK, no vet until March 21st. He takes heart meds, and is in pain. What can we do to make his final days more comfortable?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What sort of animal are we talking about?

chihuahua

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. What is the Chihuahua's name?

Kramer duke

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Kramer?

His eye with the cataract is so painful and red. his head is turning and wincing towards that side. 12 hours ago he was much better, now he can barely get around.
