I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

Hello, I'm Dr. Deb.
The moderator has asked me to help with your question since it's been unanswered for a while now. I'd be happy to do so and I'm so sorry that you've had to wait but I do have a few additional questions to ask about Fudge first, if you don't mind:

1. How long has Fudge been breathing this way?
2. Can you take his temperature?
3. Can you tell me the color of his gums?
4. Can you count the number of breaths he's taking in one minute?
5. Has he been seen for this condition?

There may be a delay after I receive your answers since I have to type up a response to you and I may be offline at the time you respond. But I'll get back to you as soon as I can since I'm on the computer some part of every day.

Thanks for your patience. Deb
