My shin tzu is shaking and panting. Shih tzu. Ma’am.

Hi my shin tzu...

Hi my shin tzu is shaking and panting

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What sort of animal are we talking about?

Shih tzu

Veterinarian's Assistant: Maybe I'm confused. I thought you had a problem with a pet. Is that correct?

Yes ma’am

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the Shih Tzu's name and age?

Caramel. 7 yrs old

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the Shih Tzu's name?

Caramel

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Caramel?

She seems like she’s having discomfort. Her tongue is really warm and she keeps on trying to find spots on my bed to get comfortable but she ends up coming to me and sitting on me. I can tell she’s not feeling well just by her panting and shaking. I know she’s trying to tell me something I just don’t know what though

Yeauh, it’s very hard for her to lay down for a long time. She keeps on standing up, looking around a little bit, pant for awhile before sitting down. Then stand right back up again and do the same thing. Her tongue is really warm. I can tell she wishes she could just sleep like she normally does but somethings not right w. her

Yes she does sound agitated

Can I suggest that you take her for a short walk now to distract her and see if she will settle down
