-Thank you for contacting JustAnswer with your questions. I'm sorry Olive is struggling.
-My name is***** have over 20 years of experience as a veterinarian and am happy to help with your question.
-Veterinary Experts are able to provide general medical advice. We are NOT able to provide a diagnosis or prescribe medications. I can help you to determine if a veterinary visit is needed or if it seems reasonable to monitor and treat at home.
-You may be automatically prompted to consider a phone consultation for an additional fee. Unfortunately, I am not able to provide phone consultations. If you would like to continue the chat, just hit decline. If you would like a phone consultation, let me know and I will disconnect so you can speak with another Expert.
-I will do my best to respond to you as quickly as possible. Sometimes, my response may be delayed if I am helping other customers as well. I assure you that I will get back to you as soon as possible to answer all of your questions.
I'd like to ask you some questions so that I can provide the best advice possible
-Did she have any vomiting or regurgitation prior to the difficulty breathing?
-It is possible she aspirated some material or even developed bacteria into the blood stream from the constipation.
-If there is an emergency clinic near you, I would recommend that you take her in for x-rays to see if she has pneumonia and if the constipation is resolved.
-Do you have any more questions?
-That is the best option given that she is so young. Respiratory distress can become very serious quickly, especially in the little ones.
-I hope the information was helpful and Olive will feel better very soon. Thank you for trusting JustAnswer with your questions. It was my pleasure to help you today. If you need further information regarding this question or need clarification on the recommendations, please let me know. I am happy to help.
I hope you were able to find a veterinarian to help Olive. Please feel free to reach out with any questions.
I'm so glad she is still hanging in there.
