Hi there and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed, internship-trained veterinarian with 11 years experience in general medicine and emergency and critical care medicine and I would be happy to assist you. Please be patient as there may be slight delays in responses as I research your pet's issue.

What breed is she and what does she weigh?

Expert:  Ann M. replied 8 months ago.

Is she avoiding stairs or avoiding jumping up on things?

Expert:  Ann M. replied 8 months ago.

I see that you have viewed my responses, but have not replied in over an hour, and I am headed to bed for the night. I am going to "opt out" so that another expert can assist you if you come back online.

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 Mollie, please?

Shaking and "clinginess" usually indicates pain, anxiety, or fear in our dogs.
