    My vet also did heart and lung xrays to rule out anything more serious.
    The thing that would concern me with your boy is the sudden onset. My girl's was much, much slower, over the course of several months.

    The sudden onset also bothers me. However, my vet did say that sometimes we don't take notice of subtle changes along the way so that maybe it was not so sudden. Now today the breathing is not noisy. I have much confidence in my vet. I have used her since she started in the area which is about 30 years ago. I will let her know all of my concerns but it is not so easy when the dog doesn't present any symptoms when in the vet's office. He was there for his Adequan shots.

    Thank you, Freya. I also snore so Mullins and Aster are in good company.

    So hard when they get older! Hope all goes well. Take care and let us know.

    Almost everyone has great tool to help your veterinarian with diagnosis, the video camera on your Smartphone. A brief video of a limp, an unusual breathing episode, a seizure, or any abnormal behavior is very helpful. I see dogs frequently for intermittent limping, reverse sneezing, etc. and a 20-30 second video can save lots of time as sometimes the owner doesn't remember right or left, front or rear.

    Thank you! I will record the sound and video him. I wish that I had thought about that ahead of time.

    Great idea. I did that once my dog limped at home but became so excited at the vets he showed nothing, so I recorded it on my phone. Im surprised your dog shows no signs at the vet mine gets worse with any excitment even just the jingle of his collar or trotting across the yard.

    My girl, too, is much worse at the vet than at home.
