    Question Late night panting question

    For the past several weeks Wilson will wake up in the middle of the night, say around 11-1 panting heavily, not gasping though. It's happened about 6+ times now. Our room is very cool still, 66 and he's not near any heater vents. He's crated at night in a well-ventilated crate. My husband thinks he gets dehydrated. He drinks lots of water after his dinner meal but also plays hard with Jack in the evening. We try to curb the water intake around 8pm. We give him as much water as he wants when he wakes up panting and that seems to do it and back to sleep he goes.

    Any ideas if that's it? He goes to the vet for his rabies this Saturday so I'll be asking him too.

    Wow..not sure about this..does he seemed stressed? I think for sure you should ask vet,seems weird that it wakes him up and he pants. Tell vet before he gets his vaccination. Just to make sure he is ok for shot.

    That makes sense, I personally allow them to drink right before bedtime. Maybe just give a certain amount at bedtime if you are still in potty training?

    Not stressed at all. I'll be sure to tell him before he gets his shots We've been allowing him to have as much water as he wants right before bedtime. He always seems very thirsty. We're making sure he gets water after play too I think he forgets that he needs some water. He's potty trained now thanks goodness.

    I'll let you know what the vet says. It was very alarming when he first did it, and it's definately weird to me, never had a dog do this before.

    @jeanneco..still happening? Does he have any different bedding in his crate? Was thinking maybe some weird allergy to fabric or something different he is exposed to at night. Will be waiting to hear.

    Hey Becky, it happened last night, we'll see if it happens tonight. He's had the exact same bedding since we brought him home. I'm inclined to think it's water but just not sure. He's my first Bulldog so I'm still learning tons.

    LOL Becky! You potty mouth you . Hopefully Dr. Tom has some answers on Sat. That'd be interesting if it was related, doubt is it, but....?

    I found it funny when I was looking for the finger shaking smiley and found this one..... That's cussing, lol.

    Mod's I'm just playing around too .

    This might sound silly but , do you think are bad dreams or maybe something like sleep apnea in dogs??
