My terrier mix dog just started shaking and seeking comfort.

Customer Question

My terrier mix dog just started shaking and seeking comfort. Just gave him some water and drank it. But all of the sudden started whining and crying. What's happening?

Suddenly shaking and whining make me think of back or neck pain, especially if he is not jumping up or if he is reluctant to lift his head or get up or down from a laying position. Is he displaying any of these other signs as well as the whining and shaking?
