Chihuahua is lethargic and shivers, tail between his legs, and will not go up or down stairs?

Postby bayarde52 » Mon Dec 12, 2011 10:06 pm

Tried making sure he was going to the bathroom ok, which he is. Did a body check and he doesn't seem to have pain anywhere.

I think it might be muscle strain since he will not climb up or down stairs and when I go to pick him up he seems to have trouble standing on his hind legs.

He did manage to find a fig newton last night, which is odd because I don't eat fig newtons so I'm sure he brought it in from the outside when he was out earlier that morning. I don't think anyone was over with fig newtons either seeing how none of my friends like them either :-/ But I did read that figs aren't poisonous to dogs so I'm not sure if that's it or not.

He's not whining at all or whimpering when I pick him up. He just sits and shivers a lot like he's cold. I thought that was the issue but even though I went and bought him a coat and have him wrapped up in a blanket he still shivers.

Not sure what else to do. The last time I took my other dog to the vet last week and I was charged $675 and I don't make enough money or have enough saved up to go back again. If there was pet insurance to go with my health insurance I wouldn't mind it, but it's crazy I can pay $25 to get seen when I'm sick but when my dog is sick it costs 25 times more.

I'm not sure if this is a joke or not, since you posted in jokes and riddles section.

There is pet insurance. http://www.trupanionpetinsurance.com/promo?pc=BNR100HPA&s=D95F6AB7-D1E5-4336-8B9E-41F94B0F5CAD


However, just like individual health insurance it won't cover things that are already wrong.
