Hello this is Dr. Holloway but you can call me Dr. H.

I am sorry no was available to take your question and I just got online to help customers for the night.

I am concerned about your pets panting episodes. For newly nursing dogs panting can be a sign of Eclampsia (low calcium). This is because of the increased demand of the puppies on her body when they nurse. If she continues to pant for more than 30 mins- 1hr, then a vet visit is recommended to check her calcium levels and ensure they are normal. If she is truly Eclampsic it can be a life threatening thing if she continues to nurse and does not receive proper treatment.

- Dr. H
