My elderly Jack Russell terrier has started breathing very rapidly - what we call huffing and puffing. It's more than just panting.
Does anyone have any idea what could be going on? Apart from this, she's perfectly OK - runs around, eats well, plays with younger dogs etc.
Thanks

Could be a sign of an underlying issue. A Vet visit is probably a good course of action. Have her checked for heart worms or lung congestion

Hello,
How is your dog doing these days? Since he is elderly you should take him to the vet to see if everything is normal and it's not a major issue. With older dogs, you need to be extra careful about any changes. In order for your dog to remain the healthiest he can be you should add supplements to his diet. There's a wellness protocol made by a company in Florida that is based on the Budwig protocol. It's made with natural ingredients and has lots of health benefits, many people have tried it and seen improvements in their senior dogs. You should look it up and see if giving it to your dog can help. Even if he's fine,a good wellness protocol can't hurt.
