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

Did her vet feel the fluid was from pneumonia? Or from being hit?

Any known heart issues?

What tests did they do?

Has she been shaking her head?

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