My 10 year old beagle is shivering when he exhales his breathing

My 10 year old beagle is shivering when he exhales his breathing is somewhat labored. unfortunately I can't get him to my vet until tomorrow. This started overnight. I'm afraid he has pneumonia. Any thoughts anything I can do tonight until he can see the vet?

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today. Are his gums pink or pale/white?Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count his breaths for 10 seconds +multiply that by 6)? Does he sound congested, wheezy, or having any eye/nose based discharge?
