10 year old retired show dog that huffs and puffs and can’t discover cause

Saturday, February 13th, 2010

Hi
I have a Collie that is 10 years old. He is a retired show dog. He huffs and puffs for a awhile and then stops. This has been going on for about a month on and off. He did the same thing about a 1 year ago and stopped.

We had him tested for Cushing’s Disease and the rest of the weird diseases but nothing showed up.

His appetite is normal. He drinks about 3 quarts of water a day and he weighs 85 pounds. We had him to the vet this spring and they wanted to do some dental work and remove a wart from his eyelid to the tune of $700.00.

They could not find out why he breathed like that.

I could use some answers of what to do when this happen.

Thank you.
Roger
