Dr. Barbara :

Hi, Welcome to JustAnswer. I am a licensed veterinarian and I'm here to help you. Sorry to hear that your pup is sick. Can you tell me more about his symptoms? Any vomiting? Any coughing? Has he received any vaccinations or deworming at your vet?

Dr. Barbara :

How long has he been ill? Is he still eating?

JACUSTOMER-oeuh9p1j- :

sorry bout that...and yes he had bin eating and has drank loads...

Dr. Barbara :

Thanks for your response! Something is causing him to not breathe well and that is an emergency. He could have something caught in his throat or windpipe, he could have distemper, he could have bacterial pneumonia. . .but regardless, he does need to have an emergency care tonight! So sorry!

Dr. Barbara :

Eating is excellent. . .but he may have inhaled some food and needs help!

Dr. Barbara :

I am encouraged that he has been eating well, so I don't think he has ill, but most likely something stuck in his respiratory tract. . .and this is an emergency.

Dr. Barbara :

I don't think he has an illness. . .sorry for my mistyping above.

JACUSTOMER-oeuh9p1j- :

ok thank you very much, much appreciated...

Dr. Barbara :

I hope that you can find veterinary care tonight and that your little guy is fine!
