She hasn't eaten or drank all day and she is laying around.

Customer Question

She hasn't eaten or drank all day and she is laying around. It's like her stomach aches when I pick her up
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Vanity 3yrs
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Vanity?
Customer: no
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

She also shakes when I pick her up and it's like it uncomfortable for her to find a position to lay down.

From what you're describing, it sounds like your dog, Vanity, is experiencing pain, either from within her abdomen (GI tract? kidneys? liver?) or her spine. Either way, I would suggest taking your dog to be seen as soon as possible.
