Hi, first, yes my dog has an appointment to see a vet, but they are not able to get her in until Tuesday.
Secondly I am looking for a second vet in the morning, but none are open right now.
My dog Roo is acting fine, other than a strange breathing pattern that has been going on for several days.
It hasn't gotten any worse, but hasn't gotten any better.
I have a video link of her here:
Now, she has several issues.
First, she has a cracked molar and the vet has prescribed her antibiotic and pain killer, which I've been giving her since her visit, about 3 days now.
The Tuesday appointment is to remove the tooth. You can see she is skinny, but her appetite has been affected by the bad tooth.
Another issue is she has had a blood test and her liver and gall bladder were slightly inflamed. This could be due to a long list of reasons according to the vet I saw, none of which are definite.
But back to the breathing. I'm looking for opinions as to what this could possibly be. She doesn't seem to be struggling to breathe or having any issues getting around, it just seems like her breaths are shorter than normal, and 'bigger'.
The vet she saw said her heart and lungs "checked out okay", at least as far as a stethoscope and looking at her.
I'm at a complete loss. Has anybody seen anything like this before, and what did it turn out to be?
Thanks for advice!
