We booked a X-mas trip to Breckenridge with our families including our baby Gus. He was great on the plane, but once we got to the destination we noticed Gus wasn’t eating, however it was a long day and we knew he needed sleep. That night his breathing was a bit off, but nothing too bad. The next morning my nephew wasn’t feeling real well so my Mom ran him to the urgent care thinking he probably had an ear infection. Well, we found out my nephew was struggling to breathe at that altitude and had to be on oxygen. Then it hit me…GUS NEEDED OXYGEN! We rushed him to a pet hospital and they told us we had to get him to lower altitude or he wouldn’t make it. We packed up and rushed him to a hospital in Denver. Two days of intensive care and we got him back Christmas Eve. Our family remained in Breckenridge without us for the entire trip… Thankfully he made a full recovery and we traveled safely home a few days later.
Pet Name: Gus
