Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hi there, I'm Dr. L and I'll try to help you today.
What's your pup's name?
I have some questions for you about her.
Does she have a heart murmur? or exercise intolerance when you take her out on a walk?
Does she pant a lot in the day even in air conditioning?
Is she over wt? Is she on any medications like steriods? Does she seem painful at all?
Does she cough in the day? Does she seem warm? Could you get her rectal temperature?
If you're not really noticing any clinical signs in the day time when she is awake and her temperature is normal, betw 100-102.5 degrees than she may just be going thru a normal R.E.M. sleep cycle when you see she's breathing fast. So yes, this could be normal.
Do you have any other questions for me?
