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 Hato, please?

Circling and panting often indicates encephalopathy (brain disorder) such as seen with an intoxication (prescription or recreational drug, other chemical, plant) or infection (encephalitis).
