I have a rescue dog. We rescued her at 8 months (She is now 2 yrs), she had already been vetted twice and we also took her for her yearly shots. We have notice that every few month or so she has this spasm where she clenches her jaw, all the muscles
in the top of her head begin to contract and release as if shes chewing. They episodes only last about five seconds and she acts completely normal. Is it possible she was exposed to distemper
as a puppy? She has no signs of distemper and has been given her shots. Could this be a seizure from allergies? She also chews a licks her paws
and forearms, even taking her limbs in her mouth and gently biting
down on them. I ask about allergies because we live in North Florida where everything is in bloom. Thank you - Cheryl
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Seizures
always look scary. Let's get you talking to the Veterinarian. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Cheryl?
Customer: No -she is full of energy at all times so I do not think she is ever weak or fevered. She has become a picky eater recently and had bad diarrhea last weekend but the head spasms have been since we adopted her. I am currently (since the upset stomach
last weekend) feeding
her boiled chicken
, rice and veggies. She was on Pedigree.
