Our question this week was:

If a dog has a fever would the dog shake as if it were really cold?

Sandy Bowers.


Answer

Hi – thanks for your email Sandy. Some dogs can shake from a fever but dogs can also shake if they don't feel well or from pain. The best way to tell if a dog has a fever is to take his temperature. A rectal temperature reading is most accurate.

An article that might be helpful to you is How to Take Your Dog's Temperature.

Best of luck!
