Many things could have happened at the groomers unfortunately, depending on the quality of business you took him to. He could have caught something from or gotten nipped by another dog. It can be an intimidating experience depending on the size of surrounding dogs, though in my experience, small dogs do pretty well. I would definitely call a vet for advice regarding his symptoms.
My Dog Was Groomed, And Now Is Coughing, Shivering, And Acting Unwell. Any Thoughts As To What The Groomer Could Have Done To Cause This?
Grooming does not create such problem but I think while grooming, water temperature was not set right. Have you checked up its body temperature? Whatever is its condition, it's never too late. You should immediately take it to vet. Sometimes the disease 'Eclampsia' shows such symptoms. There are chances that it has got deficiency in calcium in its body. Try to give it light but high quality food whenever he is ready to eat. I suggest you a homeopathic medicine Aconite that is helpful in all type of emotional traumas, inflammations and feverish conditions. But take it to vet for immediate check up soon.
I took my Shih tzu to the groomers and now she is VERY clingy. She's only 1 1/2 years old and had energy and liked the occasional pet, kiss when greeting but then would play. Now she follows anyone that is home and wants help or sits up against us. I'm concerned at what must have happened while she was at the groomers. I plan on calling the salon today.
Wow! I have a 5 month old shih tzu, that I just bought last weekm and I just brought him to the groomers this morning and the same thing happened with him.. Except for the coughing and shivering.. But his eyes were red and and his eyelids a little inflamed/red and seems at times a little lathergic.. I thought maybe it was bc it was his first experience at the groomers and maybe the experience was overwhelming for him.. But when I picked him up the groomer said he was fine... Now reading your post if his eyes are still like this tomorrow I will have to bring him to the vet to get checked out =(
