Thank you for using our service. I'm sorry to hear about your dog's breathing issues. It is important to address this issue as soon as possible, as it could potentially be a serious concern.

Before going to the animal hospital, it would be helpful to try to determine if there are any triggers for the episodes of stopped breathing. For example, does it only happen when your dog is sleeping, or does it occur at other times as well? Has your dog been experiencing any other unusual symptoms, such as coughing or sneezing?

It is also important to consider your dog's diet. Poodles are typically fed a diet that is high in protein and low in fat, and they may benefit from a diet that includes vegetables as well. However, it is important to ensure that the vegetables are cooked and properly prepared for your dog, as some vegetables can be harmful if fed raw.

If you have any additional information about your dog's health or medical history, it would be helpful to bring this with you to the animal hospital. The veterinarians will be able to examine your dog and determine the cause of the breathing issues, and provide appropriate treatment.

If you have any additional questions, please don’t hesitate to come back to us! Thank you.
