Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
I am so sorry that it has taken so long to answer your question....
Labored breathing in such a young dog as Bondo usually indicates some form of pain or discomfort. This could be from an injury or bruising that you may not be aware of or other causes such as an unstable disc in Bondo's back. The best thing you can do for now, as long as Bondo is eating some, is to give him aspirin at 5 mg per pound every 12 hrs for 4-7 days. If he is feeling better than he will be fine. If this condition worsens, you will have to have your vet examine sweet Bondo to be sure we have not missed something.Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.Sincerely, ***** *****
