Thank you for using Just Answer. My name is Rebecca; I am a veterinarian. Please give me a moment to type my answer.
I am sorry to hear you are worried about Kizzy. I am worried about the labored breathing, which can be a sign of heart or lung disease, or blood clots in the lungs.If you lift her lip to check her gums, are they pink in color, or do they seem pale?
Is she able to breathe with her mouth closed or does she have to open her mouth to breathe?
Good they are pink.Panting and restlessness can also be a sign of pain.
I am worried this could be serious. If I could, I would want to listen to her with a stethoscope, take her temperature, feel her lymph nodes. Can you get her to a veterinarian today?
Moaning is not how dogs tell us they are painful. Panting and restlessness are signs of pain in dogs.I am worried that this might be a breathing problem, and that she may not be getting enough circulation to her brain which can cause confusion.This may be confusion, but I would need to examine her to be sure it is not a physical illness.Is she eating and drinking?
