Laraine, the symptoms that Fizz is showing are very non specific and can be related to many different conditions. It will be difficult for me to determine the exact underlying cause without a hands on examination and some testing. But, common causes are: Neuromusuclar pain, a fever secondary to an infection, cardiopulmonary disease, etc. to name a few cause. Fizz will need a hands on examination by family veterinarian. In the meantime for tonight you can give her Aspirin 325mg 3/4 tablet every 12 hours. Follow up in the morning with family veterinarian.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back. I am happy to address follow-up questions. Thank you for your business and I hope to work with you again soon!
