Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
My name is***** and I am sorry that Jiggy is having an unusual breathing pattern this evening.
Is he having any vomiting or diarrhea? Is he still eating and drinking okay? Does he appear to have labored breathing when he is resting or sleeping? Have you seen any coughing or sneezing? Is he overweight?
Please let me know the answers to these questions so that I can help you and Jiggy this evening.

Okay, that is a vital part of the history! I would be very worried based on that he could have aspiration pneumonia again. He also could have it more mild cousin, tracheitis (inflammation of the trachea) from a very mild aspiration that wasn't severe enough to cause full blown pneumonia.
I would consider taking him to the ER this evening. If that isn't an option, you may be okay to wait until morning to see your regular vet. If your regular vet isn't open tomorrow, I would just go straight to the ER.
Does this help? What other questions do you have?
