Customer Question

My dog (9 yrs old, female, Boxer, white) has been lethargic and breathing shallow short breaths since yesterday. Yesterday on her evening beach walk 2 dogs who were playing near her steamrolled her, she rolled several times afyer being hit and afterwards she lied down and wouldn't get up for almost a half hour.
She is breathing like this even when sleeping.
She still walks, will jump up on the couch occasionally, and eats a little. She has a tumor in her neck area that has been causing a cough. I don't know if that is related or not, or if the hard hit from the dogs yesterday are related.
