Hi I'm Rosie one of the vets and I'd like to try and help you and Gaga. I'm sorry that this is happening to her. I have a couple of questions, if that's ok.
- when was the air drained out of her chest?
- do you know why she had air in her chest in the first place?
- how is she breathing now? is her mouth open, is she gasping?
- is she on any medication?
- is she eating and drinking at the moment?
- how fast is she breathing?
Sorry for the number of questions - the extra information will really help. You can get back to me by hitting 'reply'. Thank you, Rosie.
