I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. I understand that you don't have a medical or behavior history for your new dog. Dogs do experience panic/anxiety attacks but his "mediciny" breath, abnormal breathing, and hypersalivation can also reflect any number of systemic disorders. The most common of the abnormal breaths are an acetone (nail polish) breath smelled with advanced diabetes mellitus and the urine-like breath of advanced renal failure. I recommend having your dog attended to by a vet at your earliest convenience. I would expect a thorough physical exam including diagnostics in the form of blood and urine tests to be performed. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
