I'm very worried about Gibson. Last night after regular chores, running in the mud, and being a normal farm dog he tried to jump up on the couch and yelped in pain. Then he started shivering all over and panting fast. He can not put any weight on his rear besides standing up and walking on them. So he can't lift himself up to put his paws on your chest or hug. He will not eat. He is only licking ice cubes and won't drink. Last night I slept with him on the floor and he slept without shaking but as soon as morning came and he was up to pee outside, he started shaking all over again and panting. I am taking him to the vet of course, but does anyone know what this is? Or have they experienced it with their dogs?
TL,DR: Shivering, rear leg pain, sudden loss of appetite in dog.
