Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am sorry to hear about your dog. Are you online to discuss him?

So is he still acting lethargic and breathing heavy?

Can you look at his gums? Do they look pink and moist? Are they pale in color? dry/tacky?

Does his belly look enlarged at all?

Hello? Are you still there?

Expert:  Jess K replied 1 year ago.

It appears you have left your computer, and I am heading to bed for the night. I am going to open your question back up to other experts in case you come back online later.
