Can you clarify what "can't breath(e)" implies for me? Kennel cough sufferers can cough to the point of a terminal retch but rarely have trouble catching their breath. I also need you to assess his respiratory rate at rest for me. He should be taking less than 40 breaths/minute. Please tell me how old he is and is Willamette Animal Chambers Creek a shelter for dogs?
