My Zena is always breathing really fast. Panting with her mouth open tongue hanging to one side. The only time she breathes through her nose is when she is laying down or sleeping. She has also had what seems almost like an asthma attack (2 times). Like she is trying to breathe through her nose and can't or barley can then the air comes out of her mouth but her mouth is closed so it makes her lips flap a little and make a funny noise. Kind of like gently colsing your lips, take a deep breath through your nose, then blow it out through your mouth really hard. Any one else have dobie breathing problems??

She is 2 years old. We have only had her since October 2. We rescued her from a shelter. The first couple of days we had her she had a runny nose and sneezed (or trying to blow her nose) quite a bit. We took her to the vet and they said she was fine. She also snores pretty loud.
