I had the same worries with my girl. As soon as she would fall asleep she would start breathing rapidly and would wake up panting. I checked her pulse, listened to her breathing, her heart, and checked her breath rate. I did this 3 times a day.... And still didn't trust my readings. I didn't sleep for nights. Finally, after taking her to the vet, it was confirmed that my readings were accurate. She was just fine.... And dreaming . I had convinced myself that she had a heart murmur, or congestive heart failure.... I'd say take your baby to the vet if for nothing more than to put your mind at ease... But my opinion is, it's a puppy dream
