Respiratory RateNovember 9, 2019, 3:39 PM
- Q: How many breaths per minute should my puppy be breathing when at rest?
- A: Respiratory rate varies widely in dogs and is influenced by age, breed, activity, temperature, humidity and state of health. It can run anywhere from 10-over 100 breaths per minute. As long as your puppy feels good and eats well you likely do not need to worry about actual count. If you can describe the circumstance and reason for your question I will try to be more specific.
