I'm guessing the "B" shot was buprenorphine, a pain killer. Unfortunately what vets often forget to tell people is that a common side effect of a buprenorphine shot is heavy panting.


I hope your gorgeous Riley turns out to be okay. :goodluck


eta: I agree the evet should have xrayed. :angry:


This really pisses me off. I told the vet he has larygeal paralysis & the last thing he needs is to pant more.

I hope Riley is ok.


I have a hard time believing that an e-vet has to wait two days to get xrays back. That doesn't sit right with me.


I go to NGAP and they have them right there.

He did not take xrays.


I am at my vet w him now. We are in the back and he's laying on his bed. The vet gave him Valium and fluids and will do xrays in a couple hrs. They turned down the ac just for him and brought him an icepack. I feel so much better w him here for the day. I'm going to sit w him until he (hopefully) falls asleep. Thanks everyone. I would be freaking out so much more w/o you.

Praying it isn't anything worse than a soft tissue injury. When I read the part about the heavy panting my heart sank. All I was thinking about then is he has LP and that kind of drug would be contraindicated I'm sure. What a stressful time for you all.


Sounds like your vet know what he's doing and has the panting under control. Waiting with you while you wait on a diagnosis.

:goodluck that there is nothing of interest on the x-rays, and that Riley will feel better soon.

Well darn, that little cowdoggie isn't having a very good month. He's in our prayers and I'm sending hugs to you. As for the e-vet, maybe he needs to go back to Chicago.

My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to.

I would be furious at the EVet. We all know our dogs well enough to know when there is something wrong. I hate it when a vet just dismisses a concern I have about one of my dogs. I hope you get into your own vet soon and I hope Riley is feeling better by now.
