Customer Question

My mini Poodle is about 10 years old, he has this bad hacking cough, and won't eat much. I'm worried that his stomach is bloated a little, I think, I took him to the vet they said that he got the flu and has water in his lungs. Not Sure Why I feel it's something else.

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

How long has Max had these signs?

What tests did his vets do? Any xrays?

What treatments do his vets have him on at the moment?

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

Are his gums pink or pale/white?
