My dog won't stop crying and shaking?

Asked by Ginaz10 (10points) April 12th, 2014 from iPhone

I have a 1 year old shih tzu, and she’s the cutest thing. She was sitting on the stool in our living room and all of a sudden she started crying and whimpering almost. I picked her up and she was shaking. It was out of no where and nothing I knew or saw triggered her to cry like that. She’s been crying all night and she was in my room on my bed crying and just staring at the walls. It was really weird. I just went into the kitchen to get something to eat and she followed me, like she always does, and sat on the stool again. She was crying again and shaking. I’m getting really worried because I don’t know what’s wrong with her. Could she see something I don’t? Im so scared. Please help!

She is in pain and distress. Please take her to the veterinarian.

Crying and shaking are signs that something is causing your dog pain and should be examined by a veterinarian as soon as possible.
Could she see something I don’t?
(I wouldn’t worry about a supernatural cause unless you yourself start to experience something as well)

Veterinary science 101…KNOW YOUR ANIMAL!
Know it’s regular behaviors, eating behaviors, elimination behaviors, psychological behaviors and be aware of any changes.
Clearly she is in distress take her to the vet immediately!
She could be having some sort of seizure type episode, or any number of emergency issues.

Good luck, update us if possible.

Occums razor. She isn’t seeing ghosts. She is sick. Get her to a vet asap.

How is she? Have you been to the vet?

Have you put any flea or tick drops on her recently?

It could be anything. Please take her to the vet as soon as you can. It’s best not to wait.

#1 priority – have a vet check her out. If OK, check USGS for earthquake activity:

My dog used to act nuts 24 hr before an earthquake. Unfortunately he would react to M2-M3, which is nothing; but equally nuts for M5-M6 from far away, which did us no good.
