I recently moved back to Cotulla from Missouri and i have two pets in my household. Yesterday, I purchased a product from Walmart called "Propet Roundworm Liquid DeWormer" for the treatment of roundworms in my two dogs. The active ingredient in this product is piperazine citrate, my 11 yr. old rottweiller died from it this morning. The ingredient, after speaking to the manufacturers of this product, causes tremors, neurological shut-down, nausea, vomitting, and sometimes death. And i tried desperately last night to locate a veterinarian in the area that does emergencies, neither Dilley or Pearsall Veterinarians bother to answer an emergency call or give you a call back to help. I just wanted to say that im very disappointed in the petcare facilities that this community and the surroundings have to offer. And to let the community know not to purchase this Propet Liquid DeWormer from Walmart, it can be fatal, as in my case.

sorry to hear about your dog. it is just part of the process of being in a bigger town to moving to nowhere land here cotulla. i found the best way when i need something done to my animals is to call the vets office in dilley and during regular business hours and let them do the worming, the shots, and stuff like that. i had a dog die of heart worms from me being stubborn. she was 1/2 doberman and half blood hound. huge dog. so i learned. the hard way. again sorry about the dog. but they are nice people there at the vets office in dilley. they actually live here in cotulla, gus ralph hoff jr.

So sorry to hear about your pet. I have had emergencies with my pets during weekends and holidays. I have had to drive up to S.A. to the Angel of Mercy Animal Care. They are open 24 hours.

Dr. Ralph Hoff is a good and caring vet. I trust him to do the right think, but be very careful with the vet in Pearsall.

you are such an ass!!!if you don't have anything nice to say then keep your comments to yourself!!!
you sound like a real miserable person-the reason you probably hate dogs is because your probably upset that not even a dog would want to be your friend..so sad for you!!!!!
