Hello, Good that no appetite problems. An acute onset of panting and pacing can be caused by:- pain- nausea- recent seizure event or possibly going to have a seizure- stressed (loud noises near by, strangers in the home, etc...)- Stomach bloat- FeverSo, because of the above differential list, these are serious concerns. It may be very important for you to consider an ER vet visit to ensure he is okay. You can even take his temperature using any digital thermometer and taking it rectally. Anything over 103.0 would warrant a more immediate vet visit. Hope that information helpsDr. Andy
