Dogs naturally pant when they are hot or fatigued. But watch for clues that may indicate asthma, a potentially life-threatening condition in dogs. Asthma in dogs (as with humans) is essentially an allergic reaction to something in the environment. Exposure to the allergen triggers inflammation and uncontrolled mucus or fluid production that may block or narrow airways to make breathing difficult.
You dog stars panting more heavily and it lasts longer than usual. Look for “wide mouth” breathing and extreme expansion and contraction of chest muscles.
Coughing, wheezing or seeming to be out-of-breath are also very common signs of respiratory problems, accompanied by loss of energy or appetite.
If you notice your dog's gums turn pale or blue it's usually a sign of a severe attack. Take your dog to the vet immediately.
Ways to Prevent Asthma and Respiratory Problems in Dogs:
Don’t smoke near dogs and try as much as you can to not use your fireplace and wood-burning stove with your dog in the house. Battery-powered candles, fake glowing logs can give a cozy effect.
Consider removing all carpets and clean your hardwoods with white vinegar directly from the bottle diluted with water. Carpets are loaded with chemicals during the manufacturing process.
To deodorize the house consider placing shallow bowls of baking soda around under furniture, it will absorb odors well.
Running the air conditioner with a HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filter will help rid the house of air pollutant.
Bathe your dog regularly, making sure he is thoroughly dried.Temporarily relieves symptoms of asthma and poor respiratory functioning in cats and dogs
