Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
Does his breathing seem wet, wheezy, or raspy?
Since you noted that he is breathing heavy, can you take a breathing rate for me (just count his breaths for 10 seconds + multiply that by 6)?
Are his gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?
If you press on his belly, does he have any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing?
