I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. Stella's symptoms earlier are important but they're quite nonspecific. Acting scared, shaking, and laying around can represent an anxious. fearful, or painful dog. Have any new symptoms arisen since you initially posted that may help clarify why she's symptomatic in that manner? May I have an update on Stella please?
