Fast breathing

Lola's breathing seems normal until she goes to sleep. She's napping next to me right now, and it's like she can't catch her breath. I just timed it, and she takes about 85 breaths a minute. I know that pups breathe quickly and have dreams and whatnot, but 85 breaths a minute seems pretty extreme. Should I be concerned?

Zoey does that sometimes as well. She wakes up and is back to normal. I think she's dreaming of chasing soccer balls and cows

Ok good, then it's probably normal?

And she's 13 weeks old

Halo did that too, it was a bad reaction to the bordetella (intranasal) vaccine and was combined with mild congestion. If your pup was recently vaccinated and is slightly congested (I only noticed it in Halo when he sniffed things) that may be the cause.

I placed a vapor patch on the inside roof of his crate and that seemed to help when he slept. All over it now.

If there is no congestion, and it isn't the whole time the pup is sleeping, I would chalk it up to dreams and let it go.

I have noticed that it will sometimes occur when she is in a deep sleep. I don't feel worried about it because its does not appear to be a sign of distress.

She'll be going in for her third set of shots tomorrow. I think y'all are probably right, she's just dreaming

Thanks for putting my mind at ease!

Hahaha thank you!! Sometimes I just need a pat on the back. I'm a neurotic first time mother! I'm only 22, and I've never had a dog--not even a family dog growing up. So all of this is brand spankin' new to me.

Ha I understand! Im 21 and have always had dogs. I have been shook up because of the last two dogs I rescued, lets just say things didn't go as planned with either of them. So with Zoey I am constantly afraid she is not going to be what I hoped for. Look at my Zoey! thread. I worry sometimes that we are going to miss this puppy stage. Or something is going to go horridly wrong, she had a bad case of diarrhea that I was convinced was Parvo, well it wasn't...

Don't forget to stop worrying and have fun!

I think you and I have got it right tho! Having a puppy when in collage is the best idea ever! Zoey is so well socialized with all sorts of people, bikes, longboards, bells, buses and new smells. Im home more than I would be working and have more time to play and be with her. I assume its probably the same for you :-) By the time we hit "the real world" that everyone is telling us about we will have nice well socialized well loved and well behaved adolescents :-)
