Customer Question

Hi Candy. I was just looking up information trying to figure out why our Cocker is panting so much. I think he is just warm. Our two smaller dogs aren't panting like him though. The Cocker Spaniel is probably about 7-9 years old (rescued). The smaller dogs are 14 month old Terrier mix.

How long has he had these signs?
Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count his breaths for 10 seconds + multiply by 6)?
Are his gums pink or pale/white?
Has he been slowing down on walks?
Does he ever sit on walks and refuse to go?
Any fainting?
How is his thirst and urination? Elevated at all?
How is appetite and weight? Any changes?
