When should you see a vet about breathing difficulties in your dog?

If your dog is having breathing difficulties of any kind (whether labored breathing, rapid breathing or excessive and inappropriate panting), it is always best to contact your veterinarian to be sure.

Sudden and serious-looking cases where dogs appear distressed should be rushed to the ER, especially if your dog’s gums are turning blue, brick red or pale/white.

If your pet has more subtle or chronic changes, you can always start by taking a video and emailing it to your veterinarian‘s office to get some initial advice. Observing your dog’s breathing pattern and effort (either in person or from a video you provide) will give them a lot of information.
