Thanks Lyn, Last night while sleeping on my lap she was at 22. Im concerned
because last night her breathing became loud and wet sounding and this morning
as well. I just gave her her 25 mg of lasix and I hope she quiets down.

Breathing rate greater than 30 at rest is always a red flag for me. Fast and
shallow breathing and a strange sitting up position where they sit up with their
neck sometimes extended. They can't seem to get comfortable and won't lie on
their sides but keep their chest up off the floor.
But breathing rate is the most obvious. Find out what is normal and you'll soon
notice when something is not right.
