Concerned.... Runty won't stop shaking

Postby akkittiekat » Wed Sep 12, 2012 3:30 am

For the last 3 days or so my Runty has been shaking. Sometimes it's really strong and others it's just little constant shaking. If I am sitting down or laying on the bed she has to be touching me otherwise she is curled up in her dog bed. She is only eating and drinking small amounts at a time but not very often. If she isn't outside to go potty she is sleeping. She is walking with her head down and is just very mopey. I also noticed today that she isn't putting weight on her front left paw. Not sure if that could be related. Just wondering if anyone has any prior experience with something like this. I see a rip to the vet in the near future.

We can't diagnose or treat medical problems over the internet. Three days is a long time to let something like that go. Call your vet and get her in ASAP.

Hope your dog doesn't die of a blockage or something else that might have been able to be fixed early on because you waited too long to take her to the vet.

The near future? Your dog has been shaking for days, lethargic, hardly eating or drinking and you think you'll see the vet in "the near future"? You should be there already, there could be something seriously wrong with your dog.
