For the past two days my dog has been sleeping all day. He doesn't want to eat and he's been shaking.

Is there anything I can do for him. He's a 6year old maltese.

I would make a call to the vet ASAP.He may have a fever and some kind of infection going on. Make sure he is drinking plenty of water! Good Luck

Definitely get to the vet. Shaking can be a sign of illness or pain. Not eating is another sign. Let us know what the vet says. Good luck, we will be thinking about you!

Get to your Vet NOW!!!

ANY continued signs of not eating and shaking are BAD.

Small breeds can have HUGE dips in their blood sugars from not eating frequently! That alone is a serious condition!

This is not an issue for you to attempt to try to treat at home. A Vet visit is a MUST!

Good luck to you....hope all goes well for your little one.
