Sandy Willis, DVM, DACVIM responded:

My reply apparently did not post. DId your veterinarian take an xray of your dog's chest? That is where I might start with the history of abnormal respiration. If the chest xrays are normal, perhaps the problem is in the throat area. We need some sedation/anesthesia to look in that area. I wonder if there is some undetected trauma due to that dog bite that affected your dog, or perhaps something new going on with the upper or lower respiratory tract. Please let your veterinarian know that your dog is not doing well. We need to look further. Dr. Sandy
