2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

This might be a stupid question, but our puppy seems to be panting at night almost every night. He just recently started doing this. He drinks plenty of water and we turn the heat off during the night so it's cool for him while he sleeps. Sometimes we even keep the window open and let him sleep near it. Of course, I know dogs pant to cool themselves off, but is this something we should be concerned about? I think I am overly paranoid with anything that has to do with the puppy since we had trouble with him from the day we got him
. I just need some clarification! Sorry if this is a silly question.

Nonsense, that is what we are here for is silly questions. My pup Onyx used to do this all the time. We learned it was his way of fighting yawning and going to sleep. He would pant for minutes on end, yawn, then quit, start back up a few minutes later, yawn again, then finally lay down. We figured as a typical child this is him fighting sleeping. I wouldn't worry too much.

Panting can be from stress too - so don't think too much. Heck, my dogs pant if they have had a really intense dream.

When Loki pants at night it is his signal to me that he has to pee.

Mila just started panting at night and it's driving me crazy because she sleeps in her crate next to the bed and it keeps me awake. She eventually stops and goes to sleep but not before she has to smack for 5 minutes, which of course is lovely because that sound is like nails on a chalk board to me. But I wouldn't worry about it.

I wonder if this and the not eating are related maybe? Maybe not, I'm a holistic nut so my first instinct is to think everything is related. Has it been warmer or more humid, she may just be adjusting to that? Are her gums pale? I know you have a vet visit scheduled for her eating issues, I would recommend bringing up the panting issue as well, especially since its a new problem. What about water intake? Any change there? Btw, I'm not in the medical field, so don't get all worried from my questions, just maybe looking at it from a different angle and giving you ideas to discuss with your vet. It sounds like she has been quite a challenge and I hope you can work out these issues soon, for her health, and for your own sanity.
EDIT - I'm sorry, when I replied, I didn't notice the op was not posted by the person I thought!
I didn't mean to highjack!
I have heard puppies pant a lot and generally its nothing to worry about! Your puppy is adorable!
