Q. I would like to know if I can give my poppy medication for fever he is shaking very hard and I'm very concern

A. If you are able to take your dog's temperature safely, you can tell if he has a fever. Anything above 102.5 degrees is considered a fever. If your puppy is feverish and actively shaking it is best to contact your local veterinarian for care. Puppies can easily become dehydrated and go downhill with fevers and additional symptoms may indicate a more serious illness. In the meantime, keeping your puppy hydrated is best.
