Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today

How long has she had these signs?

Any vomiting or coughing?

Any nasal discharge? If so, from one or both nostrils? What color?

Any voice change or snoring?

Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count her breaths for 10 seconds +multiply that by 6)?
