She is a 6lb toy Yorkie and we give her meds thunder

Customer Question

She is a 6lb toy Yorkie and we give her meds for when thunder storms are around. She has taken this on several occasions. We gave her 1/2 which is what directions say, bu we had more storms and after about 6 hours we gave her another 1/4, that has beenover 5 hours ago, she is breathing very rapidly and we are a little worried
JA: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the dog?
Customer: See above
JA: Where does the dog seem to hurt?
Customer: She is a toy Yorkie and is breathing very rapidly. We give her medication for thunderstorms. She had a half of one of her pills. Storms continued to come in so about six hours later I gave her a half of my concern is about six hours later we gave her another corder you think she's had too many and this is why she's breathing so hard
JA: Can you see anything that looks wrong or different?
Customer: She's just breathing really hard and fast
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?
Customer: She weighs 6 pounds and 4 oz. The last quarter of the pill was given to her five hours ago
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
