I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. Such restlessness can arise secondary to protracted pain, intoxication by recreational or prescription drugs, parasiticides and other chemicals, and even seizures. Have any other symptoms appeared which might help localize Teddy's problem?
