I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

Welcome. I'm Dr. Bruce and I've been a small animal veterinarian for over 12 years. I'm very sorry to hear about this loss of Alfie. To help try and shed some light on this, I need to ask some questions.

1) What was he doing in the days prior to passing?
2) Was he still eating and drinking?
3) Was he acting sick prior to passing?
4) Did you have him bak to the vet after the wing trimming?
