Hello,I'm Dr. Jo and I'm here to help you with your question about Teddy. I'm so sorry he isn't doing well, but glad you're looking for the information you need. To ensure we're properly connected, please type in a short response and click REPLY or SEND.

I'm so sorry to hear you suspect Teddy is in pain. I'm sure that's terrible to watch. You are correct that a common reason dogs will shake is because of pain. There are some other reasons, though, like electrolyte (blood chemistry) disturbances, weakness, and problems with the nervous system.
Expert:  Dr. Jo replied 1 year ago.
Regardless of the cause, I'm hopeful something can be done to give Teddy some relief.
Expert:  Dr. Jo replied 1 year ago.
Because so many different things can be done to help pain or address any one of these other things that can cause shaking, I'd advise taking Teddy to the vet so he can get the help he needs. Your vet can prescribe pain medications that can give a lot of relief. It's important to avoid the temptation to give over-the-counter or human medications because these can do much more harm than good.
Expert:  Dr. Jo replied 1 year ago.
The good news is that you already have plans to take Teddy to the vet in the morning. That way they'll be able to determine if it's pain or something else causing the shaking. Also, you can rest assured that your vet will be addressing pain control for Teddy in association with his surgery. I would expect you'll be taking home some medication to give him for pain and swelling for the next several days.
I hope this information helps.
