Home Remedies For Rapid Breathing
Certain breeds of dogs (such as brachycephalic breeds) are more vulnerable to hot and humid environments. Due to a lack of normal sweat glands, dogs usually breathe rapidly to adjust to the heat. Brachycephalic dog breeds are ineffective in panting due to reduced nasal passages and Compromised trachea (inherited facial structure).
This means an increase in temperature or summertime can create considerable hazards to their health such as sunstroke, aggravated by dehydration.
