Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 9 months ago.

What is the primary concern for Honey? The fast breathing?

Has she had a consult with a cardiologist?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
No. I have her an appt. at 2:00....her pain seems to be when I touch her the fast breathing cud mean pain had pinscer with pancreatitis...she acted the same..?????
Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 9 months ago.

The fast breathing definitely could be pain and if it's located near her stomach it would be wise to talk to your vet about testing for pancreatitis.
