She is breathing heavy and panting...kind of grunting

Customer Question

Customer: She is breathing heavy and panting...kind of grunting
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: It started about 3-4 hours ago... She is a ten yr old lab... she was kind of grunting... and panting... she has arthritis so I thought maybe she was having some extra pain with the weather being so crazy I gave her a baby aspirin but it hasn't helped I just took her outside and she just had very loose stools normal in color
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $19) to post your type of question to Veterinary Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?
Customer: yes...being that it is Christmas Eve the internet is really my only chance at getting her help
JA: OK. Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

Hello, Merry Christmas

DrD is here. Can you please tell me what is happening ? How old is your dog ? Is she spayed ? What do you feed her with ? Is she on any medication ? You mentioned a very loose stool. I assume this is a large amount of diarrhea ? Am I correct ? What was the last meal ? Any chance of getting into the thrash ?
