Customer Question

my mini schnauzer is making a weird coughing wheezing sound. It almost sounds like something is stuck in his throat . He will drink but it sounds like gulping . He is sleeping but will get up periodically. He pants and then makes the noise. Do I need to take him to an emergency clinic or can I wait until my vets office hours (about 4 hours from now)

Hello, I am afraid that the expert you have requested is not currently available. Still I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

How long has he had these signs?

Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count his breaths for 10 seconds + multiply by 6)?

Are his gums pink or pale/white?

Can he eat and keep food down?
