Hello, my dog is...

Hello, my dog is showing early symptoms of distemper and I want to know if i can wait to take her to the vet in the morning or if she needs urgent care?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What seems to be the problem with your dog?

She woke up sneezing, has been having a runny nose and was lethargic all day. shes been shaking non stop for the past 2 hours and she also started vomiting in the last hour. she has not stopped shaking

Veterinarian's Assistant: This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?

No thats all. I just want to know if I should take her to the emergency vet right now or wait until the morning when her regular vet is open for business anything helps
