You're speaking with Dr. Michael Salkin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm currently typing up my reply.

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. Shaking usually indicates discomfort but can reflect fever or, conversely, a low body temperature. Anxiety, fear, and tremor syndromes are also considered. Zoe's anorexia, however, is even more important. How long has she been anorexic? Is she continuing to drink? If so, do you think she's drinking excessively? Is she spayed?

Unfortunately, her symptoms at this time - although important - aren't pathognomonic (specifically indicative) of any one particular disorder. If you have any additional history to offer up, please do so.
