Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
I am sorry to hear you are worried about Rusty. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.
If you look at his gums, do they appear pink, or pale in color? Can you take his temperature with a rectal thermometer?
There are many things that can cause shaking, and not eating and drinking. Dog will shake like this if they are painful, have a fever, or have an internal disease. Panting is also a sign of pain or fever.
He needs a good physical examination, to find out where his problem is. Until you can get him to your veterinarian, keep him quiet. I am reluctant to recommend giving anything, even aspirin, if he is not eating since he could have a digestive upset and aspirin would make that worse. Please let me know what color his gums are, and if you can take his temperature; that will help.
Hope to hear from you soon. Rebecca
