Dog Having Breathing Problems? Contact Your Vet Immediately

Dog breathing problems are scary. Dogs may wheeze, pant & cough and the reasons have a wide range of possibilities, ranging from allergies to cancer. Panting is not just a way to regulate body temperature--it is a classic sign of pain in dogs but can also be a sign of anxiety or discomfort. Coughing is an attempt to clear foreign particles, bacteria or allergens from the respiratory tract. Cats can have breathing problems too—-especially asthma. If you notice your cat or dog having any difficulty breathing—-please don’t wait. Contact your vet immediately. Even if you don’t have time to bring your pet in just then—-make the call. You could be saving their life.
