Yesterday morning my 6 year old pit mix woke up listless.
Well- this could be caused by any number of things- including various illness or she may have swallowed something that is causing a blockage and therefore causing her distress
Dogs pant because they don't have sweat glands - so they pant because they are hot or nervous, this could be due to higher temp- but you'd have to take - and dogs have a higher body temp then humans. Being listless and not eating/drinking is a big concern - are her gums pink? - white gums are a sign that not enough oxygen is getting in the blood stream and again is not a good sign. I don't like running to the vet for everything either- but in this case it may take Vet to find out what is wrong.
Hi Amy....I'm so sorry about your little girl.
This morning she seems cooler and isn't panting.
