I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Tucker's restlessness would appear to represent discomfort but the source of that discomfort isn't known unless new symptoms have arisen. Are you now seeing vomiting, diarrhea, an increased respiratory rate, lameness, a change of posture, or shaking/trembling (pain responses)? Please give me an update on Tucker. If you've already had him attended to by a vet feel free to disregard my post.
