I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. Quivering and panting are indications of both anxiety and pain which might not be mutally exclusive. They don't localize the problem, however; other symptoms are needed to do so. We do see behavioral changes with steroids, however, and some steroid injections last longer than others. It would be prudent to ask her vet which steroid was administered and how long adverse effects would be expected. Please respond with additional information and further questions or concerns if you wish.
