“I adopted Phineas from the Animal Welfare League of Arlington in March of 2020 during COVID. I had an appointment on Tuesday, 11/17 @ 8:30 am at Atlas Vet for him to get bloodwork done, as he was supposed to have teeth pulled/cleaned on 11/30. As we arrived, I called to check in and picked up the carrier to put him on my lap. I looked into the carrier to see him rolling over with his eyes completely open and he was non-responsive. I started screaming and the amazing vets ran out and sprinted inside with him. They did CPR and intubated and were thankfully able to bring him back. Once he was brought back, he was acting very strange neurologically. Read More
