I work nights and just got home form work. I took my Shitzu

Customer Question

I work nights and just got home form work. I took my Shitzu out of her crate and outside. She urinated and came in and ate as usual then back out to poop. She didn't want to come back inside and was shivering, even a treat wouldn't get her in. I picked her up and she yelped. She is shivering. I went to get her leash because that always makes her excited. She tried to be and went into the den, but them yelped and whined. now she is cowering kind of hunched over. No vomiting or diarrhea. She will not even take a treat now.

Hello and thank you for your question. It appears that the Expert you were hoping to speak with is not currently available. I have stepped in to assist you in their absence so that you have a prompt reply to your question. If you would rather wait for the Expert you had originally contacted, just let me know. Otherwise, I’ll be happy to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion? 1) Has Bella ever had any issues with pain in her limbs or spine? 2) Any history of injury? 3) Is Bella on any regular medications?
