Customer Question

She is taking short little breaths and is hacking ... Like something is caught in her throat
JA: I'll do all I can to help. What is the matter with the dog?
Customer: The breathing is what is concerning me
JA: Where does the dog seem to hurt?
Customer: A little maybe.
JA: Can you see anything that looks wrong or different?
Customer: She's resting
JA: Is the dog eating normally?
Customer: Not eating or drinking
JA: OK, abnormal eating. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?
Customer: She seems more lethargic than usual
JA: Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the dog. OK. Got it.

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. How old is your dog, please? How long has she been breathing in that manner, anorexic, and lethargic?
