dog hyperventilating, fast heart, overexcited

Any ideas for a dog who is hyperventilating, pacing, whining, very fast heart, very excited, can't settle down?

He would normally be a strammonium type dog, I think, but I don't have any right now.

The present condition was brought on by arrival of baby goats, but I brought dog indoors and he still cannot settle.

He is overexcited enuf that I am concerned about him hurting himself (he is jumping toward things) or having a heart attack.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Options I have thought of--and all of which I have:

Phosphorous seems to fit somewhat


"Calms" a combo remedy

If it is due to shock or fear-Aconite.

Phosphorus- if he is the type of dog eager to do everything, like walks you on the leash when you walk him, wants to live life to the fullest, life of the party, etc.

Read also about Passiflora if he is hyperactive.

Thanks! If the dog keeps up the goats will need aconite.

I'm looking for where I can read on Passiflora. sounds like something we might need in general.

Since I've got it and it fits decently I'll go with the Phosphorus for now. He's a hot head of a dog, excitedly enthusiastic about the possibility of chasing those goats (a party in dog terms).

Meanwhile I successfully treated myself with arnica for a blood blister as he wrenched the leash around my fingers.
