Guest jvandover Posted February 1, 2012 Share Posted February 1, 2012 Chad was laying on his new bed sleeping/resting peacefully, and the wife and I were watching TV. Out of the blue, he lifts his heard to turn and look at me, and he is panting. Immediately this throws up a red flag as I only know him to pant when he is hot, or distressed. Unlikely to be hot, as it is ~70 in my house, it was warmer than usual for Jan today (60-65) but not hot for sure. I then hear a kind of gurgly noise, I don't know if it was tummy or mouth. I rush him out back, where he wonders like normal for a bit, finds a spot to pee, and poops a bit. He comes back in, I let him back upstairs. He lays down, and immediately starts panting. I get dressed and take him out on a walk at this point, he pants pretty much throughout, it is about 50-53 degrees out. While on the walk he goes poop, looks totally normal, but resumes panting afterwards. Also through out the walk he keeps pausing and looking back at me, not that he usually pulls but he usually only stops if I tell him to with my voice or the leash. I pushed a little on his tummy and felt his tail (see note below) to see if he would react, but got nothing. Anybody experience something like this? Is anything wrong, or am I reading into it? *I should also mention that he currently has a bandaged tail for a rather large open wound. But that has been ongoing for over a month at this point, and is really progressing great, with the entire wound filled in at this point with granulation tissue.
