Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:

How long has she had these signs?

Is her breathing normal when awake?

Any coughing, snoring, sneezing or congestion ?

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