Nan, I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. If Bailey is taking more than 30 breaths/minute while asleep or at rest, she needs the attention of a vet at your earliest convenience. Advanced cardiopulmonary disorders need to be considered and these can be life-threatening in a 12 year old. Please give me an update on Bailey if you wish. I regret that my state board of veterinary examiners doesn't allow me to speak to customers by phone in this venue but other experts in this category may be able to assist you in this regard. Please let me know if you'd like another expert to do so and I'll opt out of this question. Please stay in this conversation if you wish.
