Customer Question

My dog has been wheezing when he gets excited for a week (our vet has prescribed an anti inflammatory tablet Carprieve 50mg) but tonight he has started pawing his water bowl like he wants to drink but he can't. He has been eating but slower than he normally would. He is a 5 yr old fit Springer. Your advice would be appreciated.

Hi I'm Rosie one of the vets and I'd like to try and help you. I'm sorry that your dog is ill. I have a few questions if that's ok

- has your vet run any tests so far?

- is he on any other medication, or just carprieve?

- is he pawing at his mouth at all?

- any problems swallowing so far? Any lip smacking?

Thank you - the extra information will really help. Rosie.
