Dog is very quiet and shaking

Hi,

We have an 8 month old puggle. We just got another 8 week old puggle a week ago.

The 8 mo, old just was spayed almost 2 weeks ago. She seemed normal this morning, however she so quiet now. She's shaking a little bit, not like out of control but kind of twitchy. But it's more than we've normally seen. Her tail is very low which is out of character.

She's still drinking, hasn't eaten a lot (however thats not out of character in the morning); shes quite quiet.

But I am just unsure. Should I do anything to make sure it's not something else. I don't have any way to get to a vet's today and its after hours. I was just wondering if anyone could offer any insight.

Currently she's curled up on my lap and just sleeping, but her body is twitching. And I don't mean convulsing like out of control. But it's almost like shivering. But it's very hot out!

Thanks

If that little voice inside is telling you that there may be something wrong, definitely have her checked out at the vet, Crestfallen. I can't remember all the times we've caught stuff early because we noticed some subtle differences in behavior and had them checked out. And the trembling would worry me.

How is she tonight? Any better?

She's doing a ton better.

She just needed a long sleep! She's been tired out by the new puppy who just wants to play and play and play! So shes just much better. thanks tho!
