Customer Question

my little female cav (very like the one in the picture on this page) is panting, moping, and has a dry nose. She's very lethargic and a couple of times today has yelped as if she has experienced a sharp pain.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not help you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:

How long has she had these signs?

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

Are her gums pink or pale/white?

If you press on her belly, is it tense, sore, or hard?

Does she favor any leg or have tenderness when you press/move her back or spine?

Any history or a slip, fall, or trauma?
