Question Hi. I need help to find out about my friends dog

Ok here is what he is doing: not eating, losing weight, shaking alot, will drink water, laying around and sleeping alot and showing his teeth some.

Can anyone tell me what is wrong with him and what needs to be done?

Thank you for reading

Yes, please take him to the Vet. It's already been allowed to go on so long that you can see a weight loss? He needs to be Vetted. There are a number of things that this could be.

Those are serious symptoms and they could apply to almost anything. Please have your friend call a vet. Would you want to starve to death or suffer? Good Luck.

Another vote for the vet, with full bloodwork, and whatever else that the vet may find.
