Exercice 2

1. Did you witness what happened?
-Yes, I saw him fall from the table. Right afterwards, I decided to bring him to the vet's since he seemed really bad. I heard him moaning all the way to the surgery. Indeed, he didn't stop whining. He didn't even stop to catch his breath.
2. Will it be possible for him to walk again?
- I am really looking forward to seeing the postoperative results. It is too soon to know if his condition might get better.
However, if he does not recover sensitivity in his leg within three days, it won't be worth waiting anymore. Our aim would then be to prevent him from suffering  anymore.
