Could anyone has similar experience?
Panting can be caused by overheating, stress, nausea, over exercise.. when does this occur?
Or a heart condition or laryngeal paralysis or a tracheal issue maybe? I'd have it checked out asap.

Any chance that the dog is "reverse sneezing"? This can sound quite alarming if you've never seen a dog do it. However, reverse sneezing is usually not a big deal.

My dogs all do this..I call it "horking" for some reason. They intake a lot of air through the nose and blow it out of their mouth.Originally Posted by kootenaydogs
My seven year old Lab has done something like this a couple of times. All episodes occurred while she was resting quietly. There was no "horking," just a sound of hyperventilation. The incidents never lasted more than a minute or so. We just try to calm her while it happens.
My friend's corgi does it more often, though it is not serious but still worrying, her vet advice to take a video of it that could help on examination.

Could anyone has similar experience?"
had similar experiences with our Labs and the medical condition that underlies many of these symptoms.
I've kept up with Labs and typical Lab conditions for years and had never heard of this. But my Puff had also
recently begun to "hyperventilate" and this--Laryngeal Paralysis--is the condition she was diagnosed as having.
