Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

How long have these signs been ongoing?

Did Beanie show any improvement with the antibiotics?

Does he have nasal discharge? From one or both nostrils? What color?

Are his gums pink or pale/white?

Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count your dog’s breaths for 10 seconds + multiply that by 6)?
