Q. My dog keeps whimpering and panting and he's shaking and it will sometimes stop for 5-10 minutes and then go on agian and he's been Doing it at 12nigh

A. This is probably a sign of severe pain. I'm assuming there is nothing visible fron the outside, so it must be either an internal condition causing the pain or a slipped disk in the spine.

Take him to the vet the first chance you got, they will probably be able to tell where the pain is coming fro and treat it accordingly.
