I have run out...

I have run out of enacard for my dog. The vet clinic will not be open for 6 days. Is this too long for him to be off enacard?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with your dog?

Diagnosed with congestive heart failure

Veterinarian's Assistant: Where does your dog seem to hurt?

He's OK at the moment. I'm worried about him not having his enacard for 6 days

Veterinarian's Assistant: Can you see anything that looks wrong or different?

No

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. Nothing visually obvious. Is your dog eating normally?

Yes

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. No appetite problems. Is your dog having trouble peeing or pooing?

No

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. No obvious problems there. How is your dog behaving differently?

No.
