Panting golden retriever
barnardbunch6 posted:
My Golden Retriever is a year old. And he pants all of the time. Even if he has not been running. I feel so bad for him because I feel like he can not rest because he is constantly panting. 1. It is very warm here. So I have wondered if it might be that he needs a hair cut.

2. But also I don't know where I read it but I have it in my head that this is connected with heart worms or hook worms. Should I treat him ? Or would that hurt him if he does not have them.

Please help. ( and I know you gonna say take him to vet, I was just wondering if this was something I could fix at home myself)
