Friend, breathing heavily or excessive panting can be caused by many different medical conditions. It will be difficult for me to determine the exact underlying cause without a hands on examination. But, common causes are: A fever (infection), pain secondary to abdominal or neuromuscular disorders, stress, heart or lung disease, etc. to name a few causes. Unfortunately in this case we are very limited as to what you can do at home. I would recommend having her checked by ER veterinarian, important to rule out an underlying heart disease. If you don't have access to ER vet, limit physical activity to urinate and defecate on a leash, follow up with family vet first thing in the morning. I realize that this answer may not be entirely to your liking, and I regret being the bearer of information that you really don’t want to hear. But it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me were I to provide you with anything less than truthful and honest information. I hope you understand. My goal is to provide you with excellent service - I hope I've provided the information you were seeking, if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done.
