Another lesson I learned is to keep my Emergency Vet's number & address handy, because I had to look it up, & that would have taken way too long if he really was choking to death!
And, I took him in for a cough about two months ago & the Vet gave him antibiotics that made him throw up, so I didn't give them to him as prescribed, I would give him one, one day, & two the next, then skip a day. I'm so stupid! I will never do that again! Lesson learned!
