Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

Do you think Nugget is gasping?

Are her mucus membranes pink or pale/white?

How long has she had these signs?

Any nasal or ocular discharge?

Has she been wormed? What vaccines her she had?
