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 Patches, please? Regretfully, although shaking, panting, and his change in behavior are important clinical signs, they're not pathognomonic (specifically indicative) of any one particular disorder.
