Q. My dog is not eating and barely drinking she is shivering and slightly panting what does this mean??

A. There could be just about any reason for these symptoms. You can try tempting her to eat with some cooked chicken served warm as this can encourage eating but if this doesn't work or it has been going on for some time then you need to see your vet as soon as possible.
