My 3 year old Shih Tzu sometimes has the shakes...not quite sure if it is because she is cold or just nervous. Does anyone have this problem..thanks

Is she excited when it happens? Some dogs shake when they're hyped up...

A dog will also shake when in pain. Is this something new or has she always done?

My 5.75 yr Shih Tzu does the same thing, he has been this way his whole life. I can say that after a grooming he does it more but also with longer hair, I'm sure he is not hurting he is very healthy and Vet checked I'm not sure why they might do this but I know others with shih tzus that do the same:)
must be a breed thing:angel:
