Customer Question
Hello, She seems to...

Hello, She seems to have something on her chest and has hick up like symptoms. She’s also coughing up white foam ?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Coughing can be worrying. The Expert will know what you should do. What is the dog's name and age?

Maddy and she’s a 2year old Yorkshire terrier cross

Veterinarian's Assistant: How old is Maddy?

2 years

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Maddy?

She had a hip replacement at 1 years but nothing else. She’s sat on me wheezing a little and hiccups

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

How long has she had these signs?

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)?
