Sandy Willis, DVM, DACVIM responded:

Have they taken xrays of his chest? With his respiration not being normal, I would look at his lungs, etc. with an xray. If normal, perhaps we are dealing with something in his airway. We can look at the throat and airway with special scopes, but the doggie needs to be under anesthesia. We are missing something here and if not related to the dog bite a few months back, perhaps there is some other subtle disease going on. These cases are always challenging. If your good family veterinarian is at lost, or perhaps doesn't have the ability to do xrays, ask them to refer you to an internal medicine specialist. Perhaps with their extra training and equipment, we can find what is wrong with your dog. Dr. Sandy
