Hello,

I am sorry to hear about this concern for Sadie.

Shivering/shaking/tremoring 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 Fear

But, any way we look at it, many of these conditions should result in the shaking stopping after a brief period of time. Therefore, if persisting, I absolutely vote for an emergency vet visit since it could suggest a more serious systemic (internal) issue. The other reason is because we have no way to medical manage Sadie's symptoms even if nausea or pain with just at home therapy. So, I vote against a wait and see approach at this point.

Tough to say what testing may be recommended. It will depend a bit on the examination, but I would expect at least a basic blood test, and maybe some x-rays if indicated.

Hope that information helps

Dr. Andy

Symptom but shaking
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Andy, Medical Director replied 2 years ago

Understood. But, the one she does have is very important.

An ongoing tremor or shaking simply should not be occurring. I have to suspect issues like nausea, pain or Addison's.

Remember, this isn't 30 minutes we are discussing. This is several hours, and that's the red flag.
