Possibly ate mulch or something. She is breathing a bit

Customer Question

Possibly ate mulch or something. She is breathing a bit heavy but eating and drinking.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The veterinarian will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Katie, she is about 3 months.
JA: Is there anything else the veterinarian should be aware of about Katie?
Customer: Not off hand. She did have Coccidia when I adopted her but was treated for that and Kennel cough. Right now other than breathing a bit heavier she drank water and ate her food.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

How much do you think she had? Did it have any chemicals in it?

How long ago were the kennel cough signs?

Any appetite loss, gagging, belly discomfort, or vomiting?

Are her gums pink or pale/white?
Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count your dog’s breaths for 10 seconds + multiply that by 6)?
