Customer Question

hello..
my 6month old Chihuahua has been poorly since yesterday, took him to my vet yesterday and as im on a low income it cost me a small fortune to have him xrayed and treated.. I come away with laxatives to give him to see if this would help the blockage which it still has not.. Im worried sick as my vet has informed me if he had not managed to go to the toilet by today he will need operating on at a cost I really cannot afford and they need at least half the payment up front.. im at a loss of what to do and need advice asap.. thank you Nicola
