Customer Question
Not to ask, but just...
Not to ask, but just to tell you that our dog, Gracie, who was in acute distress when I contacted you last week, has COMPLETELY recovered with NO intervention. Who the he** knows what she ate (besides the butter and its wrapper), but by the next AM she was clearly in better sorts, and by the time we got to our vet, she was just about normal!!! Exam was neg, no guarding, etc . Because of the melanoma, we were again cautioned to keep a watch, but right now she is as vigorous and playful as ever!!!! We will likely NEVER know the cause of her (pretty scary) event. Thank you so much. Lynn

Oh my goodness that is amazing!!! I appreciate the update so very much and I'm so glad that she has recovered. Dogs are amazing as far as recovering from severe diseases and yes sometimes it is a guessing game as far as what the diagnosis really is. I really do appreciate you taking out the time to contact me to let me know how things progressed. Take care, dr. Nicole
