My dog is not eating very little to none. Has lost his appitte. He is usually a very active hyper dog and now is not. He has been very slow moving and hardly gets up for the last 2days. He hardly gets up. It seemed like he was shacking yesterday in the day time as if he was cold. He's about 2years old and has long hair.

Experience: Hello, I am a small animal veterinarian and am happy to discuss any concerns & questions you have on any species.
Verified
Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.
Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:
How long has he been showing signs?
Has he been vomiting? Any retching, gagging, gulping, or lip licking?
Can he keep water down?
Are his gums nice and pink (not white/pale)? Moist or sticky?
If you press on his belly, does he have any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?
Could he have eaten anything he should not have (ie bones, stones, socks, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?
Any diarrhea?
