Hello. I'm sorry about the long wait. I just logged on and saw this. The rapid breathing is concerning in a diabetic. I would consider running in to a vet to do a glucose and ketone check to make sure she's not going into a DKA (diabetic ketoacidosis) state. If you want to just watch her at home, make sure she's eating ok, she's not vomiting and keep an eye on her gum color. It should be pink. If it's pale or blue, then I would be worried about her oxygenation. If you notice any other signs, let me know.
