Customer Question

I got a lab from the pound yesterday and she will not eat,not even scrambled eggs. She drinks but in small amounts. Her breathing is labored , with a jerking motion at the lower area about 3/4 of the way down her body and has slept most of the time I've had her. I contribute the sleep to having a comfortable place to sleep instead of a concrete floor. She's not iratable. Understands and follows commands. She has used the bathroom, both ways.
