I noticed in the past 2 days that Frida (11 months) has been panting more frequently. Its not hot outside and she drank plenty of water and had been eating and going to the bathroon normally so I was a bit perplexed. Last night it was more profuse and i became very concerned so I flipped her on her back and when we began to check her belly for hardness or bloating she snapped at us. She is a very happy, active puppy and this was very unlike her so I assumed she was in pain and took her to the pet emergency clinic where she also snapped at the vet when she pressed on her belly and back. After taking xrays the doctor concluded that it was not an obstruction but very likely back pain (nothing broken). She perscribed ramydil (whole pill twice a day) and told us to keep her as sedentary as possible and sent us home. I have to say her panting has been less profuse this morning but she is still panting and looks miserable (lays on her back and twists in strange positions and growls) and restless (probably because she is bored as we did not go for her usual walk or play with her ball)......Would you all recommed something else I should be doing for her to make her more comfortable or lessen her pain? I guess I am just overly aware of her today because she is definitly not feeling well........I apologize if my question is silly, its just so hard to see her like this...she is usualy my super radioactiveoverlyexcitedlargerthanlife ray of sunshine but not today :-(..
