Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand your dog Lillie fell into the recently serviced pool and now will not eat or drink. I would like to have her respiratory rate assessed. Would you mind please counting the number of breaths she takes per minute? This will help determine if she needs further treatment. A quick hand way is to count the breaths for 10 seconds and multiply by 6. She needs to be resting in order to get an accurate number. I will be standing by for your reply.
