Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I would love to assist you. I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years. Can you tell me where you are closest to to help locate a Veterinary Internist. Frytki sounds like he needs to be seen today. The Panting is an indication of some pan and the fact he seems lethargic, is even more concening. I will stand by to help locate soem Vets for you.
