My dog’s breathing is very labored especially when we’re walking. I’m worried … what should I do?
Dear Dr. Baum —
My German Shepherd dog’s breathing is very labored. He is slobbering badly, too. He is 2 years old. His name is Thunder-Gaylen. I need to know what to do. I don’t want to lose my pet. He keeps me company on long walks in the woods. Please help me!
Please take him to your doctor. Conditions causing these symptoms vary from arthritis, which would make walking very strenuous for him, to a heart condition, which may be the cause.
