Hello, as a licensed veterinarian I am happy to assist you. If you could provide some more information this would allow me to help you better: Is it possible that Sophie ate anything she shouldn't have? Such as bones, toys, corn cobs, chemicals (ex: cleaning chemicals, garage chemicals, etc)? I am concerned about her signs, it sounds like she is showing signs of pain. Has she had any vomiting, diarrhea, coughing, or sneezing? Can you check her gums for me? What color are they? Are they pink, pale, blue? Does her breathing seemed labored (difficult to breathe) or just fast? Is she making any funny noises while breathing such as wheezing or crackling? Does she have any discharge from her nose? Thank you for that additional information- once I receive the information please allow me some time to consider and type my response. Thank you! Dr. Drea
