How do I share video, I am so upset
Dog Specialist: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 4 months ago

There is an attachment function on the page that should allow you to post pictures and video. You can also use websites like http://www.imgur.com and youtube.com to upload pictures and video respectively. Once this is done, a set of links will appear. You can then post the link back and I can access them. If you are located in the USA and texting pictures/video would be preferable, please let me know. There is an additional charge for this service but it can take the guesswork out of trying to get information back to me and facilitate a faster response.

I will wait for vet to answer. Sophie was at the vets yesterday. We did lab test and all is normal. She thinks Sophie has gas and needs to get rid of gas, that does not make since
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
She is very weak, heavy breathing
Dog Specialist: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 4 months ago

I'll need to see a video to be able to assist you further.
