Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian & 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?

Has she had any nasal discharge with this?

Does she tend to snort/sneeze after eating or when outside? Is there any pattern you have noticed?
