I have a 7 year old black lab/boxer mix named Bella.

Customer Question
Good evening, I...

Good evening, I have a 7 year old black lab/boxer mix named Bella. Recently she has started excessive panting and trembling. The vet we go to did a complete blood work up 2 months ago and she is very healthy. This only happens at night. Right now she is laying on panting with her tongue hanging out. Nothing has changed in our house. We have a 3 year old cat that likes to annoy her but they really do get along. The vet put her on trazodone 100 mg at night but it wears off after about 6 hrs and she starts all over again. Can you provide any insight?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help the lab. What is the lab's name?

Bella, and shes not lethargic

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the lab?

No, this just started in the last week and it seems to be getting worse

Hi I am Dr. Mike, I am a licenced veterinarian and practice owner, I hope I can help you out with Bella’s issues. Has she been having any issues with her eyesight or does she act weird or confused?
