Good Morning and welcome. I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
If Lola has just had her vaccines, there is chance that she is having an allergic reaction to these vaccines which can cause this jerking movement. Give Lola Benadryl at 1 mg per pound every 12 hrs for a few days to see if this will resolve.If it does not, have your vet examine Lola since these are obvious neurologic symptoms that may require testing. This is less likely but possible.
Does that make sense to you?Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please Reply so I can clarify for you Sincerely, ***** *****
This still could be due to an allergic reaction and it will not hurt to give the Benadryl now to see if that will help. If it does not, then your vet will have to run a neurologic exam to find the cause.
