Customer Question

Our 6lb. Yorkshire terrier who is 9 years old is in her second day of a very raspy voice with rattling in her lungs and an awful cough. We can't get her to the vet until tomorrow morning. What should we do in the mean time? We are in Ridgecrest, ca. And don't have emergency care. We are so worried........

Hi, This is Dr. Gabby. Is she still eating and active? If you lift her lips, what color are her gums? Is she having trouble breathing and getting air and using her abdomen to breathe?
