Rebecca : Hello,
Rebecca : I am sorry to hear you are worried about Rio.
Rebecca : My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian, and will do my best to help.
Rebecca : Did the paracematol help at all? How much did you give?
Rebecca : Panting and restlessness can indicate pain, fever, or internal disease or imbalances such as low blood sugar, or electrolyte abnormalities (sodium, potassium, etc.).
Rebecca : If he weighs around 65 pounds, he could get 300 mg paracematol twice daily. It should not be used long term in dogs, as it can cause liver disease.
Rebecca : It should help with things like fever and pain. If it does not help, then he may have internal illness, or something like back or neck pain that may not be much affected by paracematol. Stronger pain medication may be needed.
Rebecca : it is a good sign he will eat and drink. Check his gums to see if they are a normal bright pink; that would be a good sign as well.
Rebecca : I guess you are not in live chat. I will try another format to connect with you.
