She's fine this morning and appears back to her normal self
Friend, panting and shivering could be a sign of: Pain, a fever, stress, etc. to name a few causes. If she is back to normal I would keep an eye on her. If she goes back to panting and shivering without any other symptoms I would have her checked by family veterinarian for a hands on examination to determine which of the above is the exact underlying cause. Treatment will be based on exam and test results. Please do not forget to rate my answer - I hope you found it to be excellent. If there’s more I can do, please use the reply tab and let me know. It’s my goal to provide you with excellent service." Thank you for your business and I hope to work with you again soon!
