My dog seems restless and is panting even though it's not

Customer Question

My dog seems restless and is panting even though it's not hot. She is shaking too. She won't lie down but will let you touch her. A bell squeeze didn't make her uncomfortable.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Pepper 4
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Pepper?
Customer: I don't think she invested anything unusual
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

Is Pepper tender anywhere?

Any retching, gagging, lip licking, drooling, or vomiting?

Is she drinking and eating normally?

Are her gums nice and pink (not white/pale)? Moist or sticky?

Could she have eaten anything she should not have (ie bones, stones, socks, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?

Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count her breaths for 10 seconds + multiply by 6)?
