When is dog panting classified as dangerous?
This is a very serious issue that many dog owners are not always so sure about. However, once you read the signs and determine that there is an underlying cause due to their gasping habits and behaviors, whether excessive or not, it is important to know and understand your dog first to determine if one such behavior is abnormal and report this behavior to your local veterinarian immediately.
Wheezing is a perfectly normal reaction that dogs have every day and sometimes every few minutes of everyday life. Hence, pinpointing exactly when wheezing is considered excessive is not always that easy. Dogs gasp when excited, when exercising, or when they are extremely hot and need to cool off during these summer months to store oxygen. However, excessive wheezing is something to watch out for in underlying internal conditions, which can range from breathing problems to problems related to pain due to fractures or even coping with mental health issues associated with something traumatic. The untrained or even trained eye cannot always tell exactly why your dogs are panting more than usual. If you can’t always tell, then you should definitely get checked and, in rare or extreme cases, need an X-. Beam or an MRI scan.
Dogs wheezing habits vary by breed of dog and in many cases it is normal for such breeds to wheeze harder and longer depending on age. However, if it appears abnormal and is left untreated, such behaviors can lead to heat stroke, heart failure, kidney disease, and lung-related problems and diseases such as very serious tumors. While we cannot control these issues, in these more severe cases we can safely minimize the damage by identifying the issues faster and contacting a veterinarian immediately.
Believe it or not, sometimes it can help to spend more time with Fido or to give your partner a separate room with a comfortable dog bed or even a dog crate or area in your house that can be used for a few months Serine is present for their wheezing behavior. Wheezing is also a psychoimmune reaction and could be a lot less severe than you think. So always take special care and give your dog lots of love.
