    Has she been laying? It still could be the heat, i'm in FL and mine are panting!We have'nt even reached the upper 90's yet. I'm sure humidity has something to do with it. Try giving some cold fruits etc. to see if it helps. Does she have a spot she lays in? Is she stressed about something near that spot?
