My 9 lb chihuahua mix has been acting strange days. Trembling

Customer Question

My 9 lb chihuahua mix has been acting strange for 2 days. Trembling like she is afraid and she won't eat her food. I finally made her chicken and rice today. Her nose is cold and wet still and she has no other symptoms but she is not her bouncy self. She's not drinking much water I don't think either.

Hello. I am sorry to hear that Stella is not feeling well. I would be happy to help I just have a few questions.
How old is she?
Is there any way you can take a rectal temp?
Did she eat the chicken and rice today?
When did she last urinate and pass stool?
Is she spayed, if not when was her last heat cycle?
Are her gums nice and pink and if you touch them are they moist/slippery or dry/sticky?
Does she ever eat things she should not like pieces of toys, clothing etc?
Before the chicken and rice has she had any other changes to her diet such as new foods, treats or human foods?
