While dogs can pant to cool themselves down, sometimes that isn’t enough. If your dog becomes excessively hot, they can get heatstroke. This is a severe condition that can cause organ damage or death.
As dogs get older, they are more prone to illness. These illnesses might cause them to breathe heavily or become restless as their anxiety, and joint pain grow.
Some dogs have a pretty high pain tolerance and might try to hide their injuries from their owners. Sometimes the pain is so severe that you might notice them panting and limping around from pain regardless of age.
