He started acting like he was in pain about 2 hours ago.

Customer Question
He started acting like...

He started acting like he was in pain about 2 hours ago. He's panting, drooling and shaking quite a bit. If I hold his belly he doesn't seem to mind. Wasn't interested in dinner, temp is 101.5.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know what to do with the drooling. What is the dog's name?

Ted

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Ted?

Not really, otherwise a healthy 9-11 yr old (he was a rescue 8 years ago) German Shepard Sharpei mix.

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Ted, please?

Regretfully, Ted's symptoms aren't pathognomonic (specifically indicative) of any one particular disorder. Panting and shaking are usually associated with pain, anxiety, or both. Drooling suggests cramping of the GI tract, nausea, and/or esophageal or oral irritation/ulceration.
