15 year old Jack Russell's health

by Ann Mooney
(St. Louis, MO)

My loving Jack Russell spit up last night, refuses food, shakes, whines, and stretches a lot, along with trying to roll over on his back. He drank a lot of water and spit that up. I'm only giving him sips if he wants any.

He wants to be outside lying on the ground shaking.
My husband thinks he will get over it. So he doesn't want to take him to the vet.
Anything you can tell me about his condition.
Thanks. Ann

Jack Russell shaking NEW

Your poor Jack Russell, that just breaks my heart. Because of his age I wouldn't mess around. You are right to just give him sips of water. If he doesn't get better in a few hours I would definitely take him in. It could be just a quick illness or something worse. If he were younger I wouldn't be as worried. Shaking usually indicates that a dog is ill. I hope your Jack is ok!
