Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pet today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have provided regarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? Is she coughing up mucus at all? Does she seem warm to the touch?

She is not coughing anythingdd up, and she does feel a little warm to the touch, although when the vet checked her Saturday she had no fever
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Alleyne, Dog Veterinarian replied 2 months ago
OK thanks for the additional information. Is she having any problems with breathing? If she is breathing heavy or seems lethargic I would recommend having her looked at to have xrays done to rule out something more serious
