Dog won’t put tongue in mouth???! Please help

My 12 year old dog Duke half yorkie/shih tzu is having trouble putting his youngest back into his mouth. We brought him into the animal hospital and the Dr gave no advice or options and we are very worried. Duke is unable to drink water as he seems to be unable to control his tongue and it’s trembling very much. They took his temperature and he was fine. Please offer your opinions and help! We will be bringing him to his usual veterinarian tomorrow but I am so concerned for him.

I would take him to an emergency vet and ring them first for advice or an explanation. From what I know its serious! Check the toungue & mouth for stings or barbs, check theres nothing wound around the toungue down near the throat part. You could ring poisons free helpline for advice also in case thats the cause. Squirt water in the mouth to keep liquids intake up. Look around for any evidence of what it could be eg. chewed up medication packet, open bottle, snail bait. What animals are outside, snakes?
