Hi, we have a 7-weeks old lab/rott puppy. We never had dogs before, so we have some concerns. Last week he started to pant and breath heavily in the evening (his respiration rate get up to 120 rpm), mostly when he is in his crate (in sleep or just laying down). He is fine during the day, he is active and alert. However, his breathing problems already last a week and doesn't seem to get better. If anyone has any insight or advise- we would really appreciate it. Thank you Olya
When I first got Kiba (Miniature Schnauzer) at 7 weeks, she would kind of do that. Like she was panting in her sleep. But eventually she got over it and I asked my vet and he checked Kiba and she was fine. But you should still goto your VET!
Pipey use to do that as a little puppy,pant and breath very heavy when she was lying around.Now she's a year old ,she stopped doing that as she got older around 6 months. I was concerened,she never seemed sick ,or seemed like she couldn't breath.
