Q: What does tremor or quivering in dogs mean in the TCVM?
A: Tremor, quivering, shuddering, shaking/trembling in dogs can be caused by one or more of the following patterns:
1) Internal Wind due to Liver Blood or Yin Deficiency leading to Liver Yang Rising, which causes tremor, or quivering;
2) Qi Deficiency, which fails to hold the body, leading tremor of the body, or limbs;
3) Qi or/and Blood Stagnation (the body is trying to shake stagnation away);
4) Fear or submissive behavioral issue which is associated with the disharmony between the Heart and Kidney
