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

How old is he?

What tests were done to diagnose his pneumonia?

Any retching, gagging, lip licking, drooling, or vomiting?

Can he keep any water down?

Are his gums nice and pink (not white/pale)? Moist or sticky?

Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count his breaths for 10 seconds + multiply by 6)?
