Hello, you’re through to Dr. Edele, I’m a vet working in the UK. Is Elsa having difficulty breathing?
Customer: replied 17 days ago.
She’s just breathing very fast and shallow
Expert:  Edele Grey replied 17 days ago.
Ok, is she settled otherwise or is she pacing? When did this behaviour start and what was she doing before it happened? I just need a little more information to best advise you about Elsa
