Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help. I am very sorry to see that you have not received a response to your initial question before now. I’m afraid I don’t have any control over your wait time. That said, I’ll do all that I can to help. Will you give me an update on how your companion is doing at this time so that I can move forward with addressing your concern? Have there been any changes since your original post?
