Customer Question

I have a minature dachshund that weighs 9 lbs. For the past week he has not played with any toys hasn't wanted to sit on my lap which is not like him. He runs from us and hides then he starts shaking even when he goes outside on the deck he just lays there and shakes. He is eating and going potty both 1 n 2. But he is not himself. When he sJakes does that mean he has a fever? I just checked him n his heart seems to be beating really fast
