If your dog is breathing heavily without any physical activity, then there are two possible reasons for this:

  • Your dog could be in pain, which could be due to a whole host of reasons such as: Muscular or skeletal problems, disc injury or a traumatic injury.
  • You dog may be experiencing a lack of oxygen in its body. This again could be a result of numerous problems. Oxygen deficiency can be due to diseases of the heart and lungs, pneumonia, fluid in lungs, bleeding in lungs, or obstruction of air passage.
Numerous diseases can cause breathing problems problems and weakness in a dog, so the best course of action would be to take your pet to a vet immediately.

They will be able to undertake a more detailed and thorough analysis of your animal and can hopefully treat its problems.
