My dog has been lethargic all day and is breathing more

Customer Question

Hi, my dog has been lethargic all day and is breathing more rapidly than normal. She also has a slightly swollen tummy and is off her food.

Thank you for requesting me. I am sorry I was not online when you posted your questions about Rosie.
I am worried about her, from your description. Is she eating, or drinking?
If you look at her gums, are they pink in color or do they look pale?
Is Rosie spayed?
These questions will help me answer you, since I can't see and examine her.

Apologies, I couldn't wait for the response from you, she was getting worse.

I have taken her to the emergency vet and she is staying with them overnight.

I am glad to hear that. That is what I would have recommended doing. Sorry I was offline when you posted.
Let me know how she is doing.
