I am hoping someone here might have some thoughts on this...
A year ago my dog Buddy started shaking and panting heavily - we rushed him to the vet and by the time we arrive he was fine. Two days later it happened again and again I rushed him to the vet. Nearly $400 later - the did a full blood panel and checked everything - they told me he was "normal". Though the vet suspected he had issues with his anal glands. A few months later he was having more issues so about 2 months ago we had them removed (we had them expressed in the interim while we saved money for the surgery).
Today he has started exhibiting the same symptoms all over again! Very clingy, panting, acting anxious, trembling - exactly what happened a year ago when we had all the tests. He hasn't been this way in awhile, and certainly not since his surgery.
I have no idea - I am going to call the vet in the morning (they are already closed for the night here)... I just don't want to pay another $300+ for a blood panel only to be told he is "normal" again... he certainly isn't acting that way. He was acting off for the past few days, but he is sleeping and eating just fine. Now -
