Patients having difficulty breathing warrant an immediate office visit. Problems can be related to the lungs themselves, the heart, the windpipe or the cavity in which all these are maintained. Oxygen supplementation is often needed to support patients while diagnostic steps such as blood work, ECGs and radiographs can be taken to better identify the problem source. Medical attention should never be delayed while "waiting to see if a problem will improve on its own".
If your pet is showing any evidence of difficulty breathing, don't let them turn blue over trying to save a little green. Call our office immediately.
