Hello and thank you for your question. It appears that the Expert you were hoping to speak with is not currently available. I have stepped in to assist you in their absence. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

1) Did the previous owners provide you with paperwork for his shots that might show his age?
2) Is Tyson given free access to food and water?
3) Is he still active?
4) Eating, drinking, defecating and urinating normally despite the smell?
5) How much does Tyson weigh, approximately?
