I have a puppy, probably 6 months old, and he is suffocating, very small gasps for air. Don't know if it's like a birth defect or an obstruction. I can't afford to take him to the vet, I'm not working because I'm taking care of my 81 year old mother

I'm really sorry to hear about your puppy. However, based on the symptoms you described, it is critical to seek immediate veterinary attention. Difficulty in breathing can be a life-threatening situation, and only a veterinarian can properly diagnose and treat your puppy.

There may be low-cost or free veterinary care options available in your area. Some animal shelters, rescue organizations, or charitable veterinary clinics may be able to provide assistance. It's important to reach out to them for guidance or search for local resources that can help you.

Remember that professional medical advice is essential in situations like this, so please prioritize your puppy's health and well-being.
