Hello, welcome to Just Answer. I will do my best to answer your questions and help Bess. How long ago did you give her the medication? How is she doing now?
medication about an hour and half ago. Still panting
Could be both. She keeps trying to settle to sleep
I took Bess early morning to my vet. Not fully diagnosed but after a thorough examination she thinks she has damaged her back and the pain, as you say, has caused her panting etc. She had an injection and now on pain killers.
She is still stiff when walking but obviously the pain has reduced. Will hope her improvement will continue.
Thank you so much for your help and advice.
