Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help you today.

I'm sorry that something may be going on with Boomer. I do have a few additional questions to ask about him first if you don't mind:

1. Can you tell me the color of his gums?

2. Can you describe in more detail as to what you mean about him breathing "funny"?

3. Can you count the number of breaths in one minute that he's taking at rest?

4. Can you take his temperature?

5. Any vomiting or diarrhea that you can see?

There may be a slight delay after I receive your answers since I have to type up a response to you. Thanks for your patience. Deb
