My 0 year old standard female labradoodle is yawning a lot,

Customer Question

My 0 year old standard female labradoodle is yawning a lot, often pants rapidly for long period with no apparent reason, smelly breath, tiring easily. Mobile vet could feel regular heartbeat one side but not the other. She concluded there is probably a tumour. She is eating well and enjoying life. IYesterday, morning and evening I gave her 1 teasppon of bicarbonated soda and molasses. Am I doing her any harm?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I cannot afford xrays or long treatment but want assurance my treating with bicarbonated soda and molasses is not going to do more harm than good...and if I continue treatment how long shoould I continue?

Hi JACustomer, thanks for your question. What was your original purpose for giving the sodium bicarb and the molasses?
