My dog is itching and panting, like I have never seen

Customer Question

My dog is itching and panting, like I have never seen before. Does she need to go to a vet in the am?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Using the wrong medication for fleas can be dangerous. You should definitely talk to the Veterinarian. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Gracie, age 8
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Gracie?
Customer: She is chewing at herself. I gave her water since she is panting so much.

Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 17 days ago.

The panting may be due to discomfort. Are you seeing any welts in her coat? Facial swelling?

Is she on any medication at this time?

Has she had any medication given or applied in the last 24 hours?
