    Default Short and quick breaths

    I noticed that Stig's been having some short and quick breathing for the passed couple of days. It doesn't occur all the time, maybe it happens for a few minutes then goes back to normal. It's also during random times, such as after playing or waking up from a nap or a night's sleep.

    The weather's always been below 20C / 70F so I've only been using fans and opening windows, but I'm hoping that turning on the a/c will do the trick and stop it.

    Does anyone have experience with this or know what may be causing it?

    Is he hurting anywhere? Animals breath short and fast sometimes if they are hurting.

    No, he's not limping or anything. I also gave him a massage after work yesterday (which I do regularly to check for new bumps, scabs, etc) and he was sitting relaxed with nothing that would indicate that he's hurting. When he had interdigital cysts or a small scratch on his leg from playing at daycare previously he would do a low growl to warn me not to touch that area. But he was totally fine yesterday.

    My experience is different so do NOT freak out ok?? But I would get him checked just to be safe. I had a long haired dauschund and he was older, about 10 yrs old. He started experiencing short breathing and would no longer walk up the stairs or eat. He just laid there. He had congestive heart failure that the VET misdiagnosed...don't even let me go there! Anyway, I personally would have him checked just because I freak out over the smallest things now but there are probably 100 different reasons he could be breathing like that.

    Oi, didn't even think of that. Stig doesn't seem like he's losing energy. Last night he was barking all throughout the night/morning because my sis was on the phone and making noise walking around. He's also been running and hasn't lost his appetite at all. He's in daycare now and I asked the owner to watch him closely. I'll also turn on the a/c and see how he does. If there's no change by tomorrow then we'll go to the vet.

    A few weeks ago I decided to let BabyGirl a couple of bites of yam and the following day she was breathing funny. Turns out she might be allergic to it. Her face became swollen which meant her nose got stuffy and she couldn't breath properly. Her face broke out with redness and it was a mess. After antibiotics and a shot she has recovered. Is it possible your dog has eaten something new?

    That may be it. I'm thinking Stig has seasonal allergies because he has a few new hives. We thought we were done with his allergies a few months ago when we changed his food but I'm thinking there's something in the air. Or it may be because he ate a couple of Nutro kibble that was leftover from a playdate on Sat.

    I don't think the temperature is the one causing the short and quick breathes. Have you gone to the vet yet? He may have lung problems.

    I would be concerned about this. When tidus got a respiratory infection he took short quick breaths. But he also was not eating.
