Customer Question

I have a 4 year old cocker spaniel who has been showing signs of distress for the last 48 hours. She appears unable to settle, erratic behaviour, rapid breathing. She has spent the day in the vets today on fluids, full bloods including pancreatitis have come back fine, no temperature, she was sedated for a full examination looking for possibly a grass seed that might have been causing her distress but nothing was found.
She was sent home with Metacam.
She is displaying the same distressed erratic behaviour tonight. Could it possibly be neurological?

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 your CS, please? To answer you directly, yes, her clinical signs may have a neurologic basis but agitation, restlessness, and tachypnea (increased respiratory rate) while important clinical signs aren't pathognomonic (specifically indicative) of any one particular disorder.
