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!

    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme.

    • Sure I do Dave. You take a lot of nasty old rotted left over wood from torn down houses or where ever else they scrape it up from?  Sweep it up off the floor and turn it into little compressed pellets usually for heating stoves, then Dave makes his food with it! 😜    
    • Because that's the technical term. I can't help it if you don't know what a pellet grill is or what it can do. I'm more than happy to educate you though.....     BTW, those St. Louis spare ribs were a 5-1/2 hour smoke.
