Shaking & acting scared
Our JR is almost 8 years old. He is the typical JR. Play, play, play, food and more play. Yesterday while playing with one of his toys, he yelped. Since then he has been shaking and acting scared. Occasionally there is a spark of his old self but then he's right back to shaking & acting scared. We carefully felt him over for injuries, checked his teeth & his nails. There is no injury and while he gets annoyed with the checking, there appears to be no location of pain. I'm stumped as we just had him at the vets last week and they were extremely impressed with how healthy he was at his age. He had both rabies & distemper shots that visit. Heartworm test came back good although they said he might have a tapeworm but couldn't be sure said feces was even his but to be safe we started the meds for them. As his human I am not happy that something is obviously going on with him but I can't figure it out. He's also not eating like he normally does. Any ideas?
