Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help you today. I'm sorry for this concern for Nipper and the amount of money quoted for an overnight stay at the hospital. I do have a few additional questions to ask about her first if you don't mind: 1. Do you know if the vet planned to suture Nipper's cut?2. Did they explain why they thought is necessary to keep her overnight?3. Will you or your daughter be able to treat Nipper at home? There may be a slight delay after I receive your answers since I have to type up a response to you. Thanks for your patience. Deb
