Customer Question

My 16 1/2 yr old shi shu boy started coughing. Took him to our vet. Dr. Gave him a Torbugesic inj.
At 4:00pm today. He is sleeping, totally out of it. But he is breathing very fast!!! He has high blood pressure, crushings (no med for this!), takes Rimadyl 25 mg for his back, a iodine 2.5 mg for his heart all 1 per day. I am scared about his very fast breathing!!
