Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
HI this is DRB and I would be happy to help you with this.....
If the respiration's are high with rest and not that way when puppy is awake and puppy still eating, drinking playing normally then this is completely normal behavior......puppies often breathe very fast when sleeping.....the key is to check restorations when awake....and if there is no nasal discharge and no cough then your puppy is fine. All puppies do need to go to the vet and get dewormed...this is very important because of life cycle of parasites all puppies have worms.....
You can read about parasites at the above website. Bets of luck to you and let me know if you need additional help. I will be checking back online much later tonight. Sincerely, DRB
Please give me a positive rating as that is the only way I am compensated. (rating at top right corner of page) A positive rating will not close this question and I am more than happy to answer any follow up questions that you have.
Please remember my answers do not replace or supersede the advice of your veterinarian as my answers do not create a valid client patient relationship as I am unable to examine your pet. Thank you very much! DrB
