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 Runt, please?

Regretfully, "non-responsive" suggests obtundation or coma - near death signs.

She died this morning. Thanks anyway
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 3 months ago

My condolences for your loss of Runt. I appreciate your taking the time to let me know. You may receive an inappropriate follow-up from the site ostensibly sent by me. It wasn't and I apologize in advance should you receive it.
