Most dogs often shake and shiver when they are cold or got wet. Small breed dogs sometime shake or tremble for no apparent reasons.
If you have shaking dog or shivering for a long time then you need to take your dog to your veterinarian and check the eyes, heart, respiratory rate and other check up to get accurate diagnosis of the cause of shaking. The check up will also cut out the wrong assumption of other type of serious illness symptoms.
Causes of dog shaking or shivering
* feeling cold
* addison’s disease
* outer ear infection
* ear mites
* food allergies which lead to itchy ears
Runny Nose Dog
The source of a runny nose dog is typically in the upper respiratory organs such as nasal cavities, sinuses, and the postnasal area. However, if the dog has a swallowing disorder or a digestive tract disease, secretions may be forced into the postnasal area. If the secretions are coming from the eye, it may be caused by nerve damage to the middle ear.
This nasal discharge may be watery, thick and mucus-like, or it may have pus or blood in it. (Blood-tinged discharge is a good indicator that there is a blood disorder.) Nasal discharge usually occurs when infectious, chemical, or inflammatory invaders irritate the nasal passages. It may also be from a foreign object that has become lodged in the nose. If your dog has a ear disease, it may decrease the normal secretions and cause the animal to secrete an abnormal amount of mucus.
Remember that it is normal for your dog to sneeze and have a nasal discharge, just as it is for humans. It is only when it becomes severe or chronic that you need to become concerned. Could just be a minor dog respitory problem or Dog Allergies.
- Inflamed eyes(s)
- Reduction in nasal air flow
- Diseased teeth
- Secretions or dried discharge on the hair of the muzzle or forelimbs
- Swelling of face or hard palate (due to tumor or abscess of fourth premolar)
- Polyp (may be visible on ear exam, or by pushing the soft palate down on oral exam)
- Dog Lethargic
Keep your pet warm and make sure they get enough to eat and drink. In addition, keep the nasal passages clean, especially if there is a discharge or chronic sneezing. Finally, keep your dog’s living area clean.
