I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. I regret that my state board of veterinary examiners doesn't allow me to speak to customers by phone in this venue but other experts in this category may be able to assist you in this regard. Please let me know if you'd like another expert to do so and I'll opt out of this question. Please stay in this conversation if you wish. You've described either a postural repetitive myoclonus - an episodic head tremor that is a high-frequency "yes" or "no" movement of the head and is often confused with partial seizures. Mentation (mental status) and gait remain normal during episodes. A partial seizure, however, can also cause that behavior secondary to intoxication or metabolic derangement. May I have an update on Peanut, please?
