Your puppy most likely has broncho-pneumonia. This has been fairly common in puppies especially this year.....this could also be influenza...either way what you are describing is very very serious....your puppy needs to be seen asap or will probably not make it without early aggressive treatment. I am standing by if you have any questions....DRB

She looks like she will collapse is there anything I can give her while we wait to have her seen tomorrow
Dog Specialist: Dr B, Veterinarian replied 4 months ago

You cannot wait until tomorrow...she will likely be dead by then....you must go to ER right now....there is nothing you can give her at home. She is in need of critical care NOW.
