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 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 these signs?Any breathing changes, coughing, or wheezing? Any other signs?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, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?

since about 10 pm. No breathing changes really. Maybe a little more rapid, but slightly. Its hard to tell with his belly. he doesn't really like to pick him up, he is a little strange that way. I did pick him up and carry him down stairs. But he went down the deck stairs into the fenced yard and took a poop at 2:30 am. I really don't think there is anything he could have eaten. No bones, no plants inside he can get, no human drugs. He does like to eat some longer grass out side by the fence sometimes, but just sometimes. Did not see him eat any today? There is one other pug and a small mutt dog with him, they are fine.. As of right now I am watching him in his bed while I am on the computer, there is almost no shivering, still some. I am trying not to disturb him since he seems comfortable for now.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
He sometimes can get the stuffing out of a toy and tries and eats some of that, but I usually see that. Wether there is evidence of I see him. I have seen nothing today.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. B., Veterinarian replied 1 year ago
Thank you,Now the dilemma here is that shivering is a non-specific sign that we see with fever (which he has) and when dogs feel generally unwell. So, its not unexpected with his elevated temperature but it isn't a sign that gives us many clues to why he has a fever in the first place. That said, if he has no significant breathing difficulties, tremors/seizures, toxicity risks, or pain; this isn't an emergency situation. He feels unwell but this doesn't warrant panicking nor an ER visit. All we would do with a feverish dog is dim the lights, keep things calm, and let him sleep it off. Once his regular vet is open he can be examined to pinpoint the root of the infection causing his fever and antibiotics +/- dog safe fever reducers can be administered. So, there is nothing you have reported that would suggest we need to rush him to be seen. Only that he has a fever that is making him feel unwell and something that we'd want his regular vet to address once they are open.

okay, thank you. So between now and 7am when my vet opens, what would constitute an emergency? Shall I just leave him alone, not trying to take his temp., moving him etc. for as long as he will stay put?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
he is about 27 breaths in and out a minute, give or take some shorter or longer ones.
