Is my dog sick?

My dog (Wire Fox Terrier) at times is breathing very very fast, even while lying down. Her heart rate seems to be increased also. Then she will return to normal breathing. She doesn't seem to be hot or over heated, and she hasn't been running.

I just a little worried.

There is usually a reason why animals act the way they do if it continues get it checked out, dont leave it too long. It may be nothing lets hope so.

This sound like a classic respiratory problem or infection.

If it does not resolve itself within a day or two then antibiotics are probably called for.

Good luck,
