Q. My dog has been shacking in the morning. Also, sleeping more than ususal. Eating okay,but seems a little slow. Has eaten seem grass. Is this a cold?

A. It's possible that the symptoms are from a cold, however it would be hard to tell without an examination. If the symptoms continue or do not improve after a few days, or you see worsening/additional symptoms, then scheduling a visit with your vet to check for issues is the best.
