Panting Giant Schnauzer
(Naperville, Illinois, USA)
We just added a 2-year-old female Giant Schnauzer into our home in December. Prior, she was living with her breeder/handler in his kennel.
She's been panting since we got her...at first we thought it was nerves...because she also never lays down.
Then we thought it might be a hormone imbalance, but we got her fixed over a month ago... so we're at a loss.
I finally took a huge mixing bowl and keep it full of fresh water and sometimes ice cubes. We keep our house cool and she stays on hardwood floors that are all over the main level...
Does anyone else have the same problem with a Giant Schnauzer?
I need help...it's all I hear...even when she's not around!!! - and I don't want her to be uncomfortable if something is wrong...
