Over heating/ Panting?

Recommended Posts

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!

    • Here's how most of my Hunting and Fishing goes! 🤪  😆      
    • Good to see your report Dusty. I'll be headed up that way in a couple of weeks.
    • @Abndoc I hope your conversation with the Landowner goes well.   In my experience, the 85 year old landowner truly DOES believe there’s enough land for the two hunters and couldn’t possibly think of a reason why it wouldn’t be.  A 50 year old will always be a kid in her eyes but she may not have even met him personally.  He could be a friend’s or even a friend of a friend’s “kid”.  This is a remnant if the good old days of getting private land access.   Modern deer hunting teaches us to have as much control over as much ground as we can to be more successful, so some people really forget their place as a guest of the true landowner ( I know you’ve been around long enough to know this).    I’ve  personally seen these situations go both ways:  The landowner finds out there’s a conflict and either kicks the 50 year old out for being a Dick or kicks the 2nd hunter out, feeling bad that they [PoorWordUsage]ed off the first hunter.  It’s crazy!   I think you’re handling it pretty well since the season has started.  Let her know and let her decision be the final word, without pressure from you.  BUT encourage your boy to be the FIRST person to knock on her door before next season starts!  Then he can tell the 51 year old to [PoorWordUsage] off! 😁

    • I've caught a lot of big bass on spinnerbaits over the years and I wanted to share one simple tip that is often overlooked when fishing spinnerbaits or really any bait in general when targeting big bass.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f-PDaV8byhw

    • Thanks for the info, I will give them a call.
    • The one thing I can think of that your son could have done differently is that maybe he should have got a name from the land owner and sought out the other hunter for a discussion before hand. The hunting woods are a much safer place when everyone hunting the area knows the whereabouts and plans of each other hunter in the woods.   That's not to say that the other 50 year old guy isn't being an unreasonable, entitled, first class a hole but part of this may be due to a misunderstanding if there was not a discussion prior to hunting season.
