Customer Question
My 6 year old...

My 6 year old shar pei is moving slow, warm nose and shivering. She's still eating and her urine isn't dark nor does it have any blood. She isn't avting like she's in pain.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?

Mai-Lee

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Mai-Lee?

Not that comes to mind

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Mai-Lee, please?

While her symptoms of moving slow and shivering (the temperature of noses is non-diagnostic) are important, they're not pathognomonic (specifically indicative) of any one particular disorder. Shivering often indicates pain or either an elevated or low body temperature.

I regret that my state board of veterinary examiners doesn't allow me to speak to customers by phone in this venue but other experts in this category may be able to assist you in this regard. Please let me know if you'd like another expert to do so and I'll opt out of this conversation. Please stay in the conversation if you wish.
