Over heating/ Panting?

9 posts in this topic

Even when the weather is cool my one year old lab seems to pant alot - and for long periods of time.

After maybe two minutes of exercise I can bring her in the house and she will pant for easily fifteen minutes.

Is this normal?

do you notice anything else about his behavior different? if not, then i wouldn't worry about it too much. my dog does the same thing.

next time you're at the vet though, just bring it up, or give him a call.

My dogs are also panting an extreme amount. It seems after five minutes of exercise they will pant for an hour. The vet diagnosed both of them today with a tick borne disease - anaplasmosis i think. Both dogs are on frontline, too. I started giving them meds tonight for three weeks.

tealitup how is your dog doing?

She still seems to be the same. Interesting Jameson, I may have to make a trip to the vet. Thanks!!

I thought anaplasmosis should be treated for 4-6 weeks. I highly doubt that anaplasmosis has anything to do with a dog panting. 90 percent of dogs with this or lymes are never treated and live just fine as their natural imun system fights it off.

Black Lab, summer heat = Panting.

Let us know what you find out?

Dogs have been on meds for 4 days now. They are WAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY better! Hopefully I can get them back into some kind of shape for hunting only a few weeks away.

I just brought my dog to the vet yesterday; was worried about over heating/panting. The vet checked her heart for a murmur - negative. Blood work showed no abnormality, but have not had all of the tests.

He stated that a sign of a stressed respiratory system for a dog owner is to simply look at the tongue. A nice bright pink tongue means good oxygen absorption.

He thought that some labs pant from excitement - and their personality can increase the panting. If anything comes from the blood work I will share.

Interesting post... I've been curious about my yellow lab's panting habits as well. He's nearly 3 and seems to be panting too hard and for extended periods of time from minimal exercise. Other dog owners think it's abnormal but I'm not sure what to think. He's my first lab and appears to be healthy overall and hunts/plays hard. Maybe just a lab thing...

The vet did say that alot of panting is one thing he hears alot of complaints about it labs. Maybe it is a lab thing.. he also said personality and over exaggeration could be part of it. I know my girl is a ham!

    •   I'll take them over walleye any day!!!
    • Ya know, it had been a while since I checked in here.  Seems the climate certainly has changed from the days when guys like Dietz Dittrich & Rob Kimm would foster some awesome discussion topics about fishing & the outdoors.  I'm sorry to see what this place has become.     To the guys who offered up honest answers to my inquiry, I thank you.  As for the rest of you, no wonder this once-great forum no longer is.  About the only reply missing to my initial question was, "Hey, you shoulda been here yesterday!"  Have fun liking each other's witty, zany posts, and enjoy the circle-jerk this forum has become.  From the sounds of things, you puds deserve each other.  Enjoy!
    • we have three other ones already.... but of a hoarder I guess lol
    • You guys wanna hear something funny?,  after all this jabber about the Bushmaster I dropped by the gun counter to see what the hell they were. You are right and so was I.....a very inexpensive plastic appliance sorta firearm.  I believe you are all correct it is an adequate weapon and from what I gather very dependable. If I want a simple, inexpensive weapon to repel boarders  I guess it would do so it may well be what the kid is looking for. Funny part is, a new Beretta 92FS left the store with me!  As you already know THAT is a serious and well crafted piece of machinery!! Ha Ha! And no,   I didn't need it. But it is big enough and heavy enough you could beat to death a charging buffalo!
    •   +1.  Any caliber outside of a BB gun will penetrate drywall.    
    • Do a google search of walnut hollow country turkey mount They make nice real wood ones   I ordered mine from them on amazon as it was cheaper on there for some reason They make ones without the picture on it if that's your style
    • Bushmasters are not bad I have shot a couple and they work just fine. Just think of it as a chevy Malibu. Yes there are Camaros and Corvettes out there but they come with a price. If you are just needing to get to work and back the Malibu is just fine if you want to go to the track the corvette is better. I am getting the drift he wants the gun in case you know what hits the fan well in that case the bush master will do. If he wants to do some serious shooting or competition 3 gun or whatever I would suggest otherwise.         As far as the wall penetrating debate Its all hog wash unless you are hitting studs the bullet is going through drywall with the exception of birdshot will stop after a wall or two     
    •   The importation of AKs was banned during the Obama administration, but there were a lot of them imported prior to the ban, so they are still available.  Probably not at big box stores, though.  You would have to shop around, and some of them bring high prices due to the mods made to them.   https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/banning-russian-made-ak-47s-sets-off-a-us-buying-frenzy/2014/08/31/ad6cbbde-2e0a-11e4-994d-202962a9150c_story.html
