Same as she was when I asked the question yesterday. Looking for answers to my questions.
Dog Specialist: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 11 months ago

Are her mucus membranes ever deeply pigmented such as blue or purple when she struggles to breathe?

Has she ever been placed into oxygen during veterinary visits when addressing these medical concerns?
