Last night, Ozzy was not acting normally. (And if you have a pet, or your child is a toddler, you know how it is when they are "not right.") It was almost midnight. Our options were to wait it out, or to take him to the Pet ER.
Then Tammy suggested that I Google his symptoms. I didn't find much. But then I found a website service that connected you to professionals in real time. It was www.JustAnswer.com and I was connected to a small animal vet from Hawaii.
Awesome! After a couple emails back and forth, he suggested that we treat Ozzy with Pepcid or Tagamet and see what happens. And by the morning he seemed to be better, and when I got home from work this afternoon he was back to his normal self. It was EXCELLENT service!
Yes, there was a fee, but seriously, the $18.00 that it cost was probably 5% of what the ER would have charged. And working with Dr. Michael Salkin allowed us to feel better and sleep better. Sure, ideally we would have taken him to his regular vet, but that isn't possible at midnight. This was a great service!
