Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B,a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

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?

Does Carmilla appear sore anywhere or could she have eaten anything she should not have?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The signs already appeared a couple hours before I wrote to you. When we woke up this morning her breathing was back to normal. I did check her gums before I messaged you for pale/whiteness as I know this means she is not getting enough oxygen, but her gums were fine. Please refund.

Thank goodness,

I am glad to hear that her breathing normalized and that she maintain good oxygenation (since her gums were pink). Since we weren't able to aid you I will refer your question back to customer service.

Take care & all the best,

Dr. B.
