I am sorry to hear you are worried about Wish. How long has he been like this?

Is he eating and drinking?

If you look at his gums, are they pink in color, or pale?

Expert:  Rebecca replied 2 months ago.

Shaking can be a sign of pain, fever, anxiety. What kind of dog is he?

If he were bitten by something, I would expect to see swelling in the area of the bite.

I hope you were able to see my response; I have not heard back from you. Can I answer anything else? How is Wish doing?
