Heavy Breathing?

Hi all! I'm just wondering if I'm being paranoid, but Molly is breathing awfully heavy for no apparent reason!

Her nose is also a little runny.

Any ideas??

I thought Missy was breathing heavy last night before bed...but I am thinking it was because she ran around with Casper and got to hot. It is getting warmer and I think they breath heavier when they are hot.

No, she's definitely breathing heavy and she hasn't been running around for hours. I'm getting nervous!!

Thanks Lynn!

Susan, is it hot in your house? Kubrick has been panting in the mornings since it's really warm and we don't have the air conditioner on yet.

Susan,
maybe you should take Molly in for a check up at the vets? I do think these dogs get warm very easily and it makes them breath heavy though.

I also wanted to add that by really warm, I mean around 60 degrees or so outside. I do agree with Lynn that these dogs get warm really easily.

Has she been eating and drinking ok? Has she had anything new or unusual today? I hope it turns out to be nothing, but if your worried you could call your vet.

Phoebe tends to breathe heavier than my other guys. It is usually when she lays down at night. Often she lays down right next to my head and her breathing can keep me awake. Her nose has never been runny though.

Did you take her temp? You know your pup best - I always go with my gut reaction - if I think something is not right - I don't wait too long to call the vet.

never hurts to give your vet a call

did you google the symptoms and see if anything comes up? I always feel better when I check. Trust your intuition on this one.

She's been eating fine and drinking a lot of water, now that I think of it. I'm not familiar enough with this breed yet to know how much it takes for them to get hot!

Hopefully that's it! What about the runny nose though? I'm definitely calling the vet tomorrow!
