Wondering Why?

Why do little dogs shake?

If you are like most people and have seen the small little dogs and have noticed that from time to time they tend to shake a bit, have you ever wondered why that is? It is not uncommon to notice one of the many breeds of dogs shaking and trembling and people often wonder what causes this phenomenon to happen. There are a few different reasons that causes these adorable little dogs to shake and one of the most obvious reasons is their size. Since these dogs are so small they do tend to have less body fat and this can cause for them to have some trouble when it comes to regulating their body temperature.  Having a small amount of body fat can mean that these little guys can get cold faster and are more prone to the elements than dogs of a larger breed. This is also when people may tend to see the smaller dogs dressed in small sweaters and protective clothing, it is not trying to be cute and fashionable it is because their owner is aware that will get colder faster.

Another reason that these small little dogs tends to shake can be a medical condition as well. This medical condition is known as hypoglycemia. Hypoglycemia means that one has low blood sugar. If one does not have high enough blood sugar they will have problems regulating body temperature and this can also cause the little dogs to shake. If one does have a small dog that tends to shake, it would be best to have the pet checked out to be sure that they do not have this medical condition. There are however many home remedies that one can do if their pet does indeed have this medical condition, but always wise to speak with their vet first. There may be other causes for little dogs to shake as well, but these are the 2 most common.
