Hello, you are through to Dr Linda, a UK based vet.
I'm so sorry to hear Moo Moo is not herself and appreciate your concern.Do you know if the groomer plucked her ears or expressed her anal glands?Any other symptoms such as vomiting, excessive thirst or slow walking?
Customer: replied 13 days ago.

Thank you.Her signs of shaking, lethargy and increased thirst are a concern.Potential causes could include Addisons disease (a hormonal disorder), kidney disease or pancreatitis.The stress of the groomer could be the inciting cause or it may be a coincidence.A vet check is best and I would go today if you can.They will examine her and may run some tests such as a blood test and abdominal scan. They will check for a source of pain and fever.Treatment will depend on what is going on and may include e.g antibiotics and anti inflammatories.Hopefully she is on the mend very soon as I appreciate this must be a real worry for you.
