Exclamation I Need Help

frodo has spent most of the day sleeping and he curls into a ball and shivers when he sleeps. I wrapped him in a blanket just a few min ago. He doesnt move a lot and it was raining few days ago and he had been playing outside. Do you guys think he'd caught cold? or worse than that? is there any home remedy for it..?? pls pls pls help.

thanx.

How old is the dog? what is the dog like when awake? its possible if it is a pup it is just tired, and many very young pups constantly jump and shake in their sleep, if it is older, acting lethargic when awake etc then I would have a visit to vet just for a check up.

Ginger was like that too, her paw pads were extremely warm.. and she would just lay there sleeping curled up and shiver... and her nose was dry as dirt.. but when she woke up would be wet and lick it like crazy..

i took her to the vet.. to be safe than sorry.. i found out she didn't have a temperature well it was 101.5 (but the vet said its normal) ... and Ginger was just very nauseated..

Ginger also vomitted and had diarrhea she's had all her shots..

they first did a parvo test which was negative, then they did a fecal exam for two tests (giardia & coccydia(sp?)) .. both were negative.

So they just gave her some reglan, pepcid and gave me some flagyl to take home (antibiotic) for 8-10 days...

and if she still acts like that to see my regular vet (i went to an emergency vet) ... and after all that medicine, she was perkier!


i wish nothiing but the best for you and your pup, hope everything goes swell, keep us updated!

That's a relief to know he's had his vaccines. I think the vet is your best bet. Let us know what you find out.

Aspirin is okay for dogs, in the right dosage for their weight and if it's enteric coated so it won't irritate their stomach lining.

Let us know what you find out, please, we'll worry!
