Customer Question

My 5 yr old male Cocker Spaniel, 40 pounds, is panting hard and his whole diaphragm is quivering/spasming. Should I give him an aspirin?

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:

How long has he had these signs?

Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count his breaths for 10 seconds + multiply by 6)?

Are his gums pink or pale/white?

Any history of trauma, exposure to chemicals, or medications?

Any vomiting, appetite loss, or belly discomfort?

I am not satisfied with this service, and I am requesting that the fee I paid via PayPal be refunded. Absent that, I will open a dispute case with PayPal to recover.
