- Steam of the shower to help breathing
- Massage the throat under the throat latch area to control the breathing if it is reverse sneeze
- Keeping her in a low lit cool room with minimal stimulation

If there is any change to the gums or tongue so they are blue, purple, pale, yellow; respiratory rate (breaths per minute at rest) > 60, she is unable to get comfortable, has abdominal swelling, reduced responsiveness please get to a veterinary er asap to treat her symptoms
