While our canine companions will often pant to help cool themselves down or regulate their temperature, this is a much less common behavior in cats and may be a symptom of an underlying health problem. Here, our Apple Valley vets share some of the reasons why your cat may be panting or breathing heavily and when it's appropriate to seek emergency care for your cat.

At Apple Valley Animal Hospital, we provide the preventive and restorative dental care services your pet needs to maintain good oral health.
Dental health is a vital component of our pets' overall physical health. But most pets don't get the preventive dental health care they need.
This leaves our cats and dogs more susceptible to bad breath and conditions such as periodontal disease. Over time, this can lead to more serious health problems.
That's why we're passionate about making sure your pet receives the highest standard of dental health care - and educating pet owners about at-home teeth brushing and other preventive measures.
