• My dog was trembling when she woke up this morning. I took her temperature which was 103.1. She’s not eating or drinking right now. If this continues, should I take her in to be seen tomorrow? The trembling has stopped but she seems a bit lethargic. Please advise.

    Hi Joseph,
    If this has continued, I recommend that you take her into see a veterinarian immediately if you have not already done so. The trembling, fever, and not eating or drinking is very concerning. These symptoms can be caused by many different things including infection or a serious underlying medical issue. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause after they have examined her. They may recommend some lab tests to help diagnose or rule out certain diseases. The treatment that she needs will depend on the severity of her symptoms as well as the underlying cause.
