I know this is kind of an odd question but this is a place of husky owners so I know it's a good place to ask it. So almost 5 months ago my Finley had surgery for a lung bullae in dogs. It seemed to be what forms as a blister on the lungs and then pops and when that happens air escapes into the chest from the lungs. I noticed one night that his nostrils were really flaring late at night and he was breathing hard. I could tell it was not normal so I brought him in to the emergency vet and the next day she did surgery to repair the hole in his lungs. Rough go but he recovered nicely. When he first came home they have me time his breathing quite a bit over a 30 second period and the range is anywhere from 10-40 breaths a minute and he about 90 percent of the time was in a good range of under 20. But all of a sudden I am paying attention to my dogs breathing like I never have before and I'm guessing most of you have not either. What I have noticed sometimes is that is breathing is not always a one in and one out chest movement. Every now and then I see this shallow and quick 1-2-3 chest movement. Not violent of course but not the usual 1 in and one out. I worry about him a lot and since the bullae I really worry. So tuesday I am bringing him to the vet that did his lung surgery and we are going to do a chest xray to be sure there is no leaking. I doubt if there is and so does she but I want to do it for peace of mind. She is a wonderful surgeon as she did his ligament and then his lungs but I'm sure she like the rest of us is no expert on husky breathing. I guess my question is do any of you pay attention to how your dog breathes? Do any of you see the quick 1-2-3 I am talking about? For all I know it may just be normal for him but when you have had a hole in your lungs repaired it makes me nervous. But we do have a appointment for Tuesday. Thanks.

I've always had dogs and none of them breathe oddly ... they all breathe, like most mammals, through their noses or maybe their mouths.

And less facetiously ... thanks for the opportunity to learn something new. pneumothorax in dogs, okay ... and I hope your dog is doing well.

Seriously, mine all do the same thing. Breathe in, breathe out, brea-brea-breathe in, breathe out. There is that occasional two / three step breath. One of my dogs sleeps right beside my bed so he often has a hand laying on / scratching him and I've noticed that odd breathing with him - is it normal, well, all the dogs I've had over many years will do it sometimes --- does that make it normal?? (( I hope so! ))
