Does your dog need a sweater? Because if you think something is wrong take them to the vet please. Emergency bills are ten times more expensive.
he? Emma? A he?
Emma is a she. And she is a dog. I'm not an oblivious owner that lets my dog get cold. And if any animal is shivering, it isn't a territorial thing or a sexual thing. Shivering either indicates they are cold, in stress or in pain. With her not being cold, it was 90% likely to be pain since she has very little stress that happens in our home. I had called my vet, they said if she was still shivering by noon time tomorrow to bring her in at noon.
She had a bit of tummy trouble the morning of the shakes. So at night, I gave her a tiny bit of pepto bismal with some plain yogurt and by morning, she was back to her usual self.
Sorry if I came off harsh or offensive. But your comment offended me quite a bit. I am very attentive to my animals. I don't brush off things(like what happened) as a fluke. And their health, well being and care comes number 1 to me. Heck I don't even go to the bathroom in the morning until my dog has gone potty.
