I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. The combination of panting and shaking usually indicates pain but doesn't isolate the pain to a particular area. Are there any other symptoms that might clarify where pain is originating - sneezing, coughing, vomiting, diarrhea, increased respiratory rate, pale mucous membranes of gums and tongue, or lameness? Is there reason to believe that Hershey is psychologically upset because panting can have both medical and behavioral etiologies. It's often seen with elevated ambient temperature, exercise, and anxiety. To confound the diagnosis further, it's also seen with fever, narcotic administration, glucocorticosteroid (prednisone, e.g.) therapy, Cushing's disease (not at Hershey's age), hyperthyroidism (rare), hypocalcemia (rare), pheocromocytoma (rare/an adrenal gland tumor), cardiac disease, tachyarrhythmias (fast irregular heart rates), brain disease and obesity. Please respond with additional information and further questions or concerns if you wish.
