Hello, Very sorry to hear what is going on. If she was vomiting or eating poorly due to any stomach nausea from the clavamox, the shivering may be understandable. But!Shivering can be induced by many things. Here's my initial list of concerns:- nausea- pain, which could be abdominal pain or musculoskeletal pain (like an injury)- A recent seizure- An endocrine condition. Specifically, Addison's disease (where the body is producing an insufficient amount of its own steroids from the adrenal glands)- Stress or FearSo, I am concerned there is a separate issue worth at least a recheck examination with any vet today to ensure there is no obvious pain or nausea worry. Hope that info helps.Good Luck!Dr. Andy
