Customer Question

My Yorkie is breathing heavily for no apparent reason. She does this when we travel with her also. When she is in the car she pants for hours and refuses to lay down. Now she has tarted doing this at home. Yesterday she ran for awhile outside came in acting like she was hot panting heavy. She had a restless night last night now she is panting heavy again. When she does stop to rest her breathing is raspy.
