Oddly breathing Rattie..???

This is a special place for pups to share their love and support for each other during difficult times; it's a place to light candles, give the "Power of the Paw," and let everyfur know they are never ever alone.

We got a new rat terrier pup last week (10 month old female,nearly full grown) ,and tonight I noticed her breathing in a very odd way.She would seem to take a quick,short, "in" breath, then a quick,longer "out"... kind of like a doggie hyperventilating...?? Any clue WHAT this could possibly be?? The vet isn't open till Monday!

Ill be your- loving Teddy- Bear <3

its probably just reverse sneezing
its a common problem in small dogs
be sure to ask the vet tho and in the meantime just research the problem further on the web
