Customer Question
My dog is shaking...

My dog is shaking his head and just started vomiting.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did your dog eat anything unusual?

No he refused food all day. He's has hyperthyroidism and took the food with his med. We just started it 2 times a day instead of 1 time.

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name and age?

Hermes and he's 5 years old.

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

No. Not that I know of.

I am sorry to hear Hermes is having this problem.

I will need a little more information to better help you:

1) Your dog is hypothyroid (low thyroid level), correct?

2) What is your dog's normal diet and has there been any change in the diet?

3) What medications is your dog currently taking?

4) Any diarrhea or other issues?
