I am very sorry to see that you have not received a response to your initial question before now. I just came online and found that your question had not been addressed. How is your companion at this time? Can you share video of what you're seeing?

Hes a little shitzu terrier mix with lots of energy but now hes not able to jump up or down on anything. Not able to do video right now wife is at home with him. Hes not eating or drinking. We put him in front of the bowls he just sat there hunched and then just laid down on his side
Dog Veterinarian: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 4 months ago

Thank you for the additional information.

How long has he been without food?

Are you hearing any coughing or gagging?

Any vomiting?

When did this begin?

Will video be available later today?

Dog Veterinarian: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 4 months ago
