I understand you have concerns about your pet Tess panting while nursing. She may be panting in pain from the puppies nursing. I have a few more questions however to make sure there isn't anything more serious to be worried about, like low Calcium issues.

1) Is she only panting while actively nursing? Or is she panting throughout the day when the puppies are not receiving milk?

2) Is she eating well?
3) How old are the puppies?

Just while nursing, she's eating good and the puppies were born on the 22nd of this month

Ok good. Yes I think she may be panting because it hurts her. How do her mammary glands look? Any redness or irritation that you can see? Feel free to post a photo also if you aren’t sure what is normal or not
