Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
I'm sorry to hear about the breathing trouble that Maile is experiencing. The dry nose is not indicative of anything in particular (another old wives' tale about dogs) but the labored breathing is concerning and I recommend that Maile be evaluated by an emergency veterinarian as soon as possible. Without further information, I cannot speculate about the cause of her breathing difficulty but it sounds like she needs oxygen support and immediate emergency treatment. It may be that she has something treatable or not but whether it is "her time" is something only you can answer with the help of a veterinarian that has examined her. There are many reasons that a dog may experience respiratory distress but unfortunately the cause can only be determined from a physical exam and veterinary evaluation in person. Best of luck you you and Maile. Please let me know if i can be of further assistance. If you are satisfied with my answer, please rate me so that I can be compensated appropriately. If I can be of further assistance, please do not hesitate to ask.
I cannot speak to the costs and fees, however I have responded to your question as I thought it urgent. If you are dissatisfied, please contact customer service and if I can answer any further questions, please feel free to let me know. Given the concern about respiratory difficulty, however, I recommend immediate evaluation by your local emergency veterinary clinic as it sounds like Maile needs urgent assistance.
