Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

What signs are you seeing? Any sneezing, coughing, or wheezing?

Any nasal discharge and if so what color?

Any appetite loss?

Are her gums pink or pale/white?

Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count her breaths for 10 seconds + multiply by 6)?
