Customer Question

my 13 year old Papillon is in distress . Very pale tongue and sighing, won't move. he's been on solon for thyroid, has a huge fatty tumor, and we think he has Cushing's. Also been taking adequan injections for torn ACL. He's been doing very well, but suddenly he is not. I don't want to do emergency things if this is the end......

I am sorry Zach is in distress tonight. The pale tongue worries me. I can understand that you don't want to go through extraordinary measures if he is terminal, but the only way to know is to have him examined tonight. Do you have ER veterinary services available that can at least examine him?
