Panting

Can't see the video!

You need to change the privacy settings on your FB page so we can see this, or upload the video to Youtube.

I don't want to change my FB privacy so when I get home I'll try and get it on youtube and then put it on here.

Had she just been playing or does she pant like that at rest? It is warm in your house? If this is happening at rest and it's not exceptionally hot I would have her checked out by a vet and make sure there isn't any underlying heart or lung issue.

He's very active and he just got done playing about 5 minutes prior to this video but He pants like this a lot. He never pants when he's sleeping or completely at rest. Why it does bother me though is because his brother which is also a F2 doesn't pant at all unless i get him really wore out. Ari is his name and he's only just turned 5 months old. Our home is air conditioned. It just bothers me because his brother doesn't do this.

Well then for your own peace of mind I would have him checked out by your vet, and if there is any indication that he has a heart problem (HCM) he should be seen by a vet cardiologist or at the least have an echocardiogram (heart ultrasound) done.
