My jack is almost 8 years old and he recently started these shivering episodes. He is fine for a while then he shivers for a bit for no reason. Can you help?

Jack Russell shivering
by: Danielle

It is not uncommon for Jack Russell's to shiver, it's something within the breed. It looks worse then it usually is. However, since this is a new behavior I would have it checked out by your vet to make sure it's not Cushings Disease. Sometimes dogs shiver in response to pain which is another reason to have your Jack checked out.
