Hello there. This is Dr.Paul Brazzell- Nice to meet you. I am sorry that you are having trouble with your pet; I can understand how stressful it is for you. I will do my utmost best to help you. Please note that it may take a few minutes to see my reply to your posts. Discussing the case by phone allows me to be more efficient and accurate in assessing the problem. Now, let’s see if we can get this sorted out for you.

Please let me know when you are ready to begin.


Good morning. Has Delilah vomited? Is she spayed? When is the last time that she ate?

I'm not paying you 30 dollars for a phone call

I did not request a phone call. Did you see my questions above?

I am very concerned that Delilah could have bloat, or that she has a hiatal hernia. In light of this, I would recommend taking her in for an examination and abdominal X-rays. I hope, of course, that I am wrong. But, either way, they will be able to treat her with fluids and medications to settle her stomach. It is always best to err on the side of caution.

I hope that you are comfortable with my recommendations. Please let me know if you have more questions.
