My dog is having jerky type movements, a bit like a horse

Customer Question

My dog is having jerky type movements, a bit like a horse shying and some muscle tremors
JA: I'll do all I can to help. What seems to be the problem with your dog?
Customer: I'm not sure, he is a large dog, has just eaten his dinner but has been quiet all day. He was really thirsty after eating his dinner
JA: The Veterinarian will know if your dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Chewie and he is 14 months old
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Chewie?
Customer: I think that's all, he is a farm dog though

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. Chewie's movements suggest intoxication with a central nervous system stimulant such as the rodenticide bromethalin or snail bait metaldehyde. Do you have such products on the farm?
