Customer Question

My 4 y/o lab just began whining, he is moving very stiffly, panting, and shaking. He acts like he is in pain but I have inspected him all over and cannot located any particular spot that is giving him problems. He isn't running a fever but something is wrong.

Posted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello. I would like to request the following Expert Service(s) from you: Live Phone Call. Let me know if you need more information, or send me the service offer(s) so we can proceed.

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner and I regret that my state board of veterinary examiners doesn't allow me to speak to customers by phone in this venue but other experts in this category may be able to assist you in this regard. Please let me know if you'd like another expert to do so and I'll opt out of this question. Please stay in this conversation if you wish. Boots's symptoms suggest intoxication or complex partial seizure (also called psychomotor seizure). Has he remissed since you first posted? If so, how long did it take for him to normalize? Did other symptoms arise which localized his problem?
