Customer Question

Mr. Kat is about 20 years old and has been wheezing terribly....just like all the humans with this severe allergy season...I have expected him to pass anytime in recent years and wonder if this is it...should i let nature take its course? Is he suffering? putting an animal to sleep is a dilemma.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
How long has Mr. Kat had these signs?
Are his gums pink or pale/white?
Since he is wheezing, can you take a breathing rate for me (just count his breaths for 10 seconds + multiply that by 6)?
Any open mouth breathing?
How is his appetite, thirst, and energy level?
