Heavy Breathing
by: Donna

You have had your dog long enough to know what is normal and what is not.

First, get your dog to a vet if you are concerned about his breathing.

It could be anything.

Take her to the vet for a full workup, without delay. Anytime a dog acts out of the ordinary its a symptom for something. The vet will tell you what and how to treat it best. Do not wait.

Does he wheeze? That is indicative of a problem.
My Pyr prefers to be outside and breathes heavily in the house, but he is not uncomfortable. If you are still worried, then take him to your vet.

histoplasmosis
by: Anonymous

My 2 year old female was breathing heavily and it turned out she had histoplasmosis.
The treatment is an anti fungal pill taken everyday for 4 months-we are 20 days into the treatment now and she is showing some signs of improvement. Good luck.

I would say to have the vet check fo check for a chest tumor. We lost our Pyr at 9 to a chest tumor that bled into his chest. He started walking VERY slowly on his walks, coughing at times and breathing heavily at rest. He had Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever with pneumonitis as a two year old which may have set him up for problems later. I would check it out for sure.
