Hello, you are through to Dr Linda, a UK based vet.
I'm sorry to hear Sophia has this issue and appreciate your concern.This is a true emergency and she needs to see a vet immediately.Potential causes would include asthma, heart disease or a toxin ingestion.She likely needs antibiotics and medicine to help her breathing.This is not something that can wait and she needs to be seen right now.
