Q. When our 4 year old English Pointer breaths out there is a raspy wheezing noise. Otherwise she is her normal happy self.
DR. CHRISTIE LONG, D.V.M., C.V.A.
A. It's possible that your dog has a respiratory infection that's causing the sounds you're hearing. Sometimes they can be only mildly affected and continue to act normally, and in a couple of days clear the infection on their own. However, if these signs don't start improving within 48 hours, or definitely if they are worsening, I recommend getting her checked out to determine if she could have something foreign stuck in her throat, or have a more complicated problem such as pneumonia which requires specific drug therapy.
