Hi there and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed, internship-trained veterinarian with 12 years experience in general medicine and emergency and critical care medicine and I would be happy to assist you. Please be patient as there may be slight delays in responses as I research your pet's issue and as I am typing out a response.

Can you tell me more about this breathing? How long does it go on for? Does it happen in episodes? What does it sound like? Is the dog running around the house when it happens, or at rest?
