Oscar, Camilla's shaking often is a symptom of pain or fever but it's not pathognomonic (specifically indicative) of any one disorder. A wet nose doesn't tell us much, unfortunately. In these cases it's important to assess the urgency of having Camilla attended to her by her vet. Please check a few vital signs for me...

1) Check her gum and tongue color. They should be nicely pink - not whitish (anemia) or bluish/greyish (cyanosis/hypoxia/lack of oxygen to her tissues).

2) Check her respiratory rate at rest. She should be taking less than 40 breaths/minute at rest.

3) Take her rectal temperature. Any body thermometer will do when placed 1.5" into her rectum for 1 minute. Normal is 38-39.2C. This is a two person job!

Please let me know what you find.
