• my puppy's tail is down after she started shaking this afternoon. she was fine this morning until she woke up from her nap and started shaking. I let her out for couple of minutes, but when we went inside, she started shaking again. she jumped on me and whimpered. I don't know whats going on. now she stopped shaking but her tail is down. the shaking occurred right after when she woke up and when my little brother was playing with her.

    Hi Eliza,
    I recommend that you take her into see a veterinarian as soon as possible if you have not already done so. The symptoms that you are describing can be caused by a few different things from an injury or illness or even seizures. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of her symptoms 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 and underlying cause of her symptoms.
