Friend, the symptoms and history you are describing in Daisy are consistent with a respiratory infection. If this is caused by a bacterial infection she will need to be treated with antibiotics. Unfortunately, we are very limited as to what you can do at home, I am sorry. If she is in distress I would recommend having her checked tonight by ER veterinarian, do not wait. If cost is a concerned I would look into your local ASPCA or Shelter where they often offer veterinary services at a lower cost.

I realize that this answer may not be entire to your liking, and I regret being the bearer of information that you really don’t want to hear. But it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me were I to provide you with anything less than truthful and honest information. I hope you understand.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service. If you have any follow-up questions don't hesitate to ask. If finished, please take a moment to rate my service it is how I get compensated. See you again soon!

My vet out here said that she is not going to get well. She has a virus that she can’t get over. He wants to put her down.

I am sorry to learn she is not doing well.
