Hi,

My name is***** and I am sorry to hear that Danny is sick this evening.

Panting in dogs is often a sign of pain. Could Danny have injured himself in some way? How about abdominal pain? Can you press on his belly to see if he reacts? Any vomiting or diarrhea?

Please let me know the answers to these questions so that I can help you and Danny this evening,

Dr. Amanda
