Default Red sclera and gums, shaking

Hi everyone!

One of my neighbour's dogs (4 rescues) has had a shake for 4 days, and she's still unsteady on her feet. I looked at her today, and the whites of her eyes are streaked red, and her gums and lips are bright red, too.

The dog is not eating, but is drinking water normally.

She's a Shih-Tzu mix, only a couple years old.

The vet isn't closer than 6 hours away for another 2 weeks.

We would appreciate any help you could give!

Thank you! (once again)


It's hard to stay mad at something that misses you when you're asleep.

If she doesn't have a vet that she can call, I would have her call that 24/7 Univ. of S. emergency vet number that was posted when you were having trouble with your dog.

Agree with Dunbar's Mom it's essential that a vet is called I dont think the problem will go away on it's own much better to be safe than sorry. The fact is the gums are bright red is a good indicator that something is not right. Please let us know what the vets says!
