Customer Question
Hi - my dog...

Hi - my dog is a Boston terrier. English bulldog mix and is panting heavily and very thirsty suddenly. There is a chance she ate cat litter although I can’t be certain. She’s obviously uncomfortable and her belly feels full to me.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if your dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?

Lola is 5

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Lola?

No I don’t believe so.

It started about 3 hours ago. She pants and drinks for 15-20 mins. I’ve then walked her around a little and she fall asleep for an hour or so before awakening and repeating.

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Lola, please?

Her symptoms are important but they're not pathognomonic (specifically indicative) of any one particular disorder.
