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

Is the cough harsh or soft?

Any nasal discharge? What color? From one or both nostrils?

Are her gums pink or pale/white?

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