Is this a life threatening problem?
Expert:  Dr. Emily replied 2 years ago.

Hello, my name is***** and I would like to assist with your question today. This is typically not life threatening but can be a sign of pain or stress. The source needs to be explored further if the panting continues. How long has she been panting?
