Customer Question
My little dog petie...

My little dog petie has been gasping for air all night. He holds his nose up so he can breath.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the dog?

Not sure he was put on antibiotics two weeks ago. My vet says he may need steroids. My big concern is NOW. He's really having a hard time breathing

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

No he is 9 years old and I live in an area that doesn't have a lot of help in this area
