Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name?

Gloria

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Gloria?

She has some bite wounds on her neck head and belly, I don't know if she picked her up and shook her or tryed to carry her

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

Does the down pup have any movement or feeling in her back legs?

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)?
