Wow, Judy this is awe-some! Lola is one lucky pup to live with you and to get to share her happy self with the kids (or anyone).

This is a fantastic way to share her love. Thank you for doing it. 🙏 🥰:dog2:

I am getting concerned about Lola recently. She seems to get winded doing nothing. In this video she is sitting in the vehicle and it’s nice and cool. Ugh once again the video is too long but it’s only 8 seconds!

How is her BEAM otherwise Judy?

Is she limiting her own activity in any way like taking shorter walks, fewer fetches, etc.?

Any coughing or other respiratory symptoms?

She goes to work w me everyday but even some of the cops ask her if she just ran a marathon? No coughing. She hesitates a bit jumping in the car and I mean the floor of back seat not the way back which is too high for her. Who can I send the video to?

Lola had a chest X-ray and looks good as well as her bloodwork. I really think she has pain either in her neck or back causing her to pant. I’ll try cbd? Arnica? Should she go for chiropractic adjustment? PT with water treadmill?

Chiro would be at the top of my list. If she needs adjustment, then other sorts of therapy such as massage, acupuncture, swimming, etc. will help maintain alignment once achieved.

Dr Jeff do you recommend anyone for chiro and might need referral for insurance?

OK, but I'm no expert at radiographs. That said, I don't see anything terrible going on in the vertebrae, at least thoracics. It looks murkier to me in the T-L transition; wish we could see a bit further down. This is the area where my girl dog fell apart, causing paralysis and an early demise, so I'm wary. OK, now perhaps the "real" guys will jump in with a response, and we can all learn more.
