Heart Heavy breathing

This is what I mean by heavy breathing. She's very relaxed but, I can almost see her heart beating. Is this normal.

Any concerns about breathing should be addressed to a vet. It may be normal for her (has this how she's always been?) and nothing to be concerned about; or it may be sign of something serious like congestive heart failure or lung disease; or it may be something mild and easily treatable like seasonal allergies. Only a vet can tell you for sure so if you're concerned, I'd take her into see the vet.

Her gums are nice and pink and she's very active....runs all over the house and isn't at all lethargic. She doesn't do it all the time...and she's done since I've had her...and Debbie said she did it when she had her. Debbie had her spayed as well as having a hernia fixed and the vet said she was in excellent health other than the hernia.

I can't download the video for some reason...something about a security token...I have no idea.

I've been watching her, and when she's awake and playing or just following me or the cats around she doesn't breath heavily. When she starts to drift off to sleep is when it seems to happen and then once she's asleep she almost looks like she isn't breathing at all...LOL
