Recognizing the Signs of Asthma

It’s normal for dogs to
pant on hot days or when they feel tired, but pet owners should be aware that
asthma can also make breathing difficult in pets.  This allergic reaction triggers inflammation
that can narrow or block airways.  We
remind pet owners to keep an eye out for clues that may indicate that your pet
has asthma.
Asthma Symptoms:
  • Heavy panting
  • Extreme expansion and contraction of chest
  • Coughing
  • Wheezing
  • Loss of energy
  • Loss of appetite
  • Pale or blue gums (in severe cases)

Both cats and dogs are
susceptible to asthma.  If you notice
that your pet is experiencing any of these symptoms, you should bring your pet
into our office for a visit.  We can help
you determine the allergen that is causing your pet’s asthma.
