KrisK Posted December 27, 2008 Report Share Posted December 27, 2008 Zachary, my miniature schnauzer (13 yrs old) has a heart condition for which he's been treated for 5 years. He wasn't up to his usual self so I took him to the vet 3 weeks ago. He did blood work and everything but his liver function was fine. So he's on a liver supplement. Prior to that, Zach was having little tremours in his back end. Since I noticed it most after walking, I just associated it with the exercise. I mentioned the tremours to the vet, but he didn't think it was anything to worry about. He's been having them more often. They don't last long, but he trembles all over, then acts like he's frightened and runs. Last night was the worst I've experienced. From 12:00 midnight to 5:00 am. he would have episodes like I described above. I know I need to get him to the vet, but we're in the middle of a freezing rain/ice storm/rain which means I might get out of here, but not back home. DH is away, so I can't leave the place unattended because we could have some flooding. I'm going to call the vet right now. Sorry for this, but I'm afraid I might be losing the little ironman.
