Got a happy new 10 week old puppy. She has all the worm treatments and has had two shots, last one was on the 31st of december. Picked her up that day as well. I noticed when sleeping she breathes three or so times faster than normal and she has hacked a little but nothing comes up(very little hacking). Her nose is a bit dry but i wasn't able to visit a vet today since it was the first and none i could find were open.
What i want to know is if this is normal or if she needs to see a vet. She doesn't seem bothered by any of this and is happy, playful, pooping, eating, and drinking perfectly fine.
Thank you for your time
I'm not a veterinarian myself, but from what you describe, I doubt that you have anything urgent that you need to worry about right now.
Your pup has been treated for worms and had two sets of puppy shots which is good. She's also eating, drinking and eliminating normally - again good.
The rapid breathing you notice is normal for a puppy. They often breathe erratically, may twitch and wriggle and even whine/whimper from time to time. Basically they're dreaming, and it's nothing to worry about.
The 'hacking' you mention could be early signs of an infection of some sort, or it could be nothing at all, it's impossible for me to tell I'm afraid. Her nose being a bit dry is also normal, contrary to popular belief, a healthy dogs' nose isn't cool and wet 24/7. If she's indoors and it's warm, or outdoors in hot weather, chances are her nose will get dry. That's nothing to worry about either.
However, it is always advisable to have your own vet check out your new puppy as soon as possible after you bring her home. That way you can make sure there are no underlying health issues that you've not been aware of, and you can also check that she's up to date with all preventative care.
So, I would recommend that you make her an appointment with your veterinarian soon, but I doubt it's an emergency. BUT... if you are ever worried about your pups' health, or you notice signs of possible dog illness, always talk to your vet. It's better to be safe, than sorry.
Best of luck with your new pup.
