I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner and I regret that my state board of veterinary examiners doesn't allow my speaking with customers by phone in this venue. Please stay in this conversation if you wish. While the temperature of the nose isn't a good assessment of illness in dogs, breathing rapidly does concern me. If you're seeing a respiratory rate greater than 40 breaths/minute at rest, Cassy should be attended to by a vet at your earliest convenience. Such a rate isn't pathognomonic (specifically indicative) of any one disorder but can indicate pain, anxiety, respiratory compromise, and cardiopulmonary disorders. Please give me an update on Cassy.

Hi,
