First our Shepherd had 2nd degree grease burns from jumping up on the stove, then the lab got a stomach virus, and now for the last 6 months we've had a sick kitty. They are doing everything they can to make sure we find out what is wrong with him. Just good humans. Thank you again for all your compassion."
