Is your old dog shaking? 1 of these 7 problems may be the cause
Luckily many of the conditions that cause old dog shaking aren't life threatening

Some of the smallest breeds of canines — Chihuahuas in particular — are known for their tendency to tremble, but it can be a bit startling when your old dog starts shaking suddenly. Especially if they're a larger breed or have no history of tremors, you might find yourself taking to Google: "Why is my old dog shaking?"
Just like with any health condition, there’s more than one possible cause for this symptom. Your old dog’s shaking may or may not have anything to do with their age, though it’s not uncommon for older dogs to develop issues that result in tremors. Whatever the reason, you can help your senior pup stay happy and healthy with your keen eye and lots of TLC. If you’re concerned, don’t ever hesitate to contact a trusted vet, either. That's why they're there after all.

Are weakening muscles the cause of your old dog shaking?
As dogs age, it’s common for them to lose muscle mass — regardless of their diet and exercise regimen. One way weakening muscles present themselves is through instability and shaking, especially in the legs.
You may see your pup’s neck muscles start to atrophy if their head starts to bob or tremble (it may also be time to switch to a lighter collar). A quick checkup from your vet will make sure that your dog isn’t in pain, and they can recommend therapies or medications either way.

It’s hard not to love watching your puppy sleep. In fact, they might somehow manage to get cuter as they snooze. They look so content and peaceful, especially if they're snuggled up to you. Though experts frequently recommend giving your pet their own sleep space, like a crate, it’s ultimately up to you. Regardless of where and when your puppy is sleeping, you want them to be comfortable and safe. If you notice your puppy breathing fast while sleeping, you may get worried. Should you be? It depends.
Here’s what experts want you to know about labored breathing during sleep and when to call a vet.

Different puppy sleeping patterns
Before we get into breathing patterns, it could help to have some knowledge of puppy sleeping patterns. They're similar to ours, though puppies cycle through them more quickly than humans. A puppy may experience 20 sleep cycles nightly. Humans typically go through about four or five cycles. These are the phases.

You’re not the only one who needs to bundle up when the temperatures drop. Lots of dogs are well suited for the cold weather with their thick coats and fuzzy paws. But others would rather stay inside where it’s nice and warm. Smaller dogs, short-haired dogs, some senior dogs, and dogs with illnesses like diabetes, arthritis, and circulatory problems might find it uncomfortable to venture outside when the weather turns cold.

Unfortunately, outside is where their toilet is. And when that potty is covered in ice and snow, the motivation to use it may wane significantly. You don't like a cold seat after all, right? Does your pup hate going outside in cold weather? Here’s how to train a dog to pee outside in the cold.
