Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hi this is Dr. Hill. How old are the puppies?
So in this age dog, the most common causes of intermittent tremors are infectious (toxoplasmosis, neospora, coccidiosis, other), low blood glucose, seizure disorder or a neuromuscular disorder. Has the puppy been eating well?
Okay. So unlikely to be a low blood sugar. I recommend that you video tape the episodes when they happen, so that you can show your veterinarian when they are available. You will need to take her in to your vet for a physical, a fecal exam at a minimum. The video is important because since it is episodic your vet will need to see exactly what she has been doing.
Good. Sometimes Neospora can be seen on a fecal, but they may need to send out bloodwork. It is treatable, but needs to be before they become severely affected. Please continue to ask any follow up questions. You can continue posting on this thread for a couple of days, even after rating my response. Take care.
