Heavy panting

by Lori
(Wonder lake)


My male pyrador 7 month old puppy, seems to pant heavily. Looks like his heart is going to explode. He does this intermittently. He doesn't have to be running or over heated. At first I thought it was when he was hot, or ran around but that's not the case. It can be after he has chewed up a toy or bone. Or when someone stops by and gives him attention. So my question is, is it normal for this type of dog to pant heavily?

Heavy panting

Your Lab/Pyr cross could have anything going on.

I suggest you take him to the vet for a check up.

It doesn't sound like overheating.

It could be pain, or any other number of things.

Have a look at this website for more information:

I would definitely take him to the vet and make sure his heart if ok. He's just beautiful!!!! My Saint Bernard also pants heavily and he does not have to be hiking or playing. Had him checked but he is fine just has a hard time in the heat plus is afraid of thunder and fire works. Boy does he pant then. Once your dog is checked for this problem you will feel a whole lot better. Treating younger dogs works really well. Best of luck!!!!

If you're vet says he would whimper if he were in pain, you need a new vet. Many dogs, especially Pyrs, are very stoic and will whimper/cry if the pain is piercing. Panting can be a good indication of pain.

As Donna said, read this information:

Puppy panting is normal at times.
by: Anonymous

Puppy panting when sleepy, or sleeping, is 100% normal and will slow down when he's bigger.
If he's short of breath during wakeful times, vomitting, or gagging/coughing when awake, or playing, or exerting energy - you need to see a vet ASAP.
