Hello this is Dr. Holloway but you can call me Dr. H for short. I will do my best to answer your question but first I have a few of my own to give me a better picture here of what's going on.

You mentioned that your pet has a rattle in the chest? Can you explain this a bit more?

Also is he having any trouble breathing, distress?

-Dr. H
