My dog is shivering/trembling and wont eat her food?

46 posts in this topic

Just asking if anyone has any experience with this, she hasn't eaten in 2 days or so, her own food anyway and she seems to be shaking/shivering as if she's cold or something but it's pretty warm today.

Would she be ill or anything?

Cheers.

If she's not had any food in two days then I wouldn't leave it any longer and would get her to the vets as soon as you can mate.

It is indeed man lol

I think she'll be alright, it's calmed down a lot in the past 20 minutes or so, but she's just doing it on like 10-20 second intervals...

I'm gonna' leave it a little while now and see how it goes.

frankly i think your stupid if you do.

not eaten for 2 days, that presents dehydration and then no energy from lack of food, if shes shaking aswell thats no good.

my dog had to have aloy of injections and treatments when she came down with somthing similar, we nearly lost her..

you'd be stupid to leave it in my opinion, not just for you but for the dog.

We all worry about our pets when they become ill, but i think sometimes we ( me included ) can over react.Dogs can pick up bugs just as we do but they are generally more resilient than us so they don't get as many.

At the end of the day only you can judge if she needs to goto the vets, but as long as she's getting some fluids down her i'd try not to worry too much. she's most likely found something on the ground and eaten it.

Give her a day or 2 m8,unless she gets worse, and see how she goes.

She's been drinking and stuff.. just no food.

And when I say a little while I mean like 45 minutes or so.

several things, dust allergy, wheat intolerance and lactose intolerance.

she was then giving these steriods to help calm her when she does have a reaction, to dust. but she was then allegic to the steriods as they contained somthing toxic in them, but its all good now, she'd get special dog food, and hers as good as she's ever been:)

Umm... I'm signed up with my vets for a monthly price and they give you discounts on everything anyway. So no, but it's relatively cheap for me.

She's calmed down a bit now btw. Sleeping and no shakes for now!
