Customer Question

Hi Pearl. I have a small doxie and she seems to be breathing hard and has the shakes. Think she ate too much fat off a beef bone.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the beef will be able to digest that. What is the beef's name and age?
Customer: beef bone was hard. She doesn't want to eat tonight, so figured it was too much fat
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the beef?
Customer: no.... had a lot of scrizzle
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello this is Dr. Holloway but you can call me Dr. H for short.

I understand you have a Dachshund that is having respiratory distress symptoms and shaking. I do have a few questions to help me evaluate your pets situation a little better so that I can give you the best advice.

How long has she been breathing hard? What is her respiratory rate (count each breath for 15 seconds and then multiply that # ***** 4)?
