Perfect. I'll keep an eye out.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
She seems less disoriented now. Just resting. And more coherent but still very stumbly as she's walking.
Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 7 months ago.

I'll be interested to see what you're seeing at home. I'm sorry she's not acting like herself. It seems pets always choose nights, weekends and holidays to scare us, as owners.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Thank you very much for your concern and help. I really do appreciate it, she's all I got.
Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 7 months ago.

Absolutely. Happy to assist.
