My Dog Is Shaking

When the dog shakes, what can it be?

Sometimes this can be something simple, unimportant.

In others, the animal may be signaling a condition that must be observed.

You must pay attention to the reasons which lead him to act like that.

Do these questions:my dog trembles sleeping? My dog shakes his head. My dog trembles with fear?

Depending on the response, the reasons may be different and distinct.

It’s normal to be apprehensive. After all, shaking the whole body does not seem to be a natural thing.

The shakes of your puppy

It is possible that the animal, on these occasions, start shaking the whole body or the head or the butt.

It can happen to him shaking only the hind legs; or so the tremors are accompanied by moaning or groaning lows.

Except for those situations in which the pet is happy to see the owner, or because you realize you’re going to walk, these tremors can be signs of health conditions, moderate or serious, and it’s always good to stay alert.

Pay attention to these symptoms:

stool with blood;

  • persistent diarrhea;
  • vomiting and lack of appetite;
  • fever and discouragement;
  • the dog groans to rise;
  • congested eyes and excessive mucus.

These symptoms may reveal dangerous diseases such as rabies, distemper and Parvovirus. They are severe and can cause death (in the case of rabies, even the death of the owner).

If the dog has 3 or more of these symptoms, you should look for a vet.
The dog trembles with pain

One of the causes of shaking in the dog can be a pain. The dog WAGs in an attempt to ward off the discomfort caused by localized or generalized body pain.

3) no longer joy to be invited for a walk, or demonstrates a discreet joy.
