Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
I am sorry to hear you are worried about Max. How old is he? How long have you had him?
My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.
Dogs do not get Parkinson's disease, but there are many conditions that can make them shake. Does he do this all the time, or only intermittently? It could be due to back or neck pain, or it could be a form of a mini or partial seizure. Shaking can also be from aging/cognitive dysfunction.
The cure would depend on what is causing it, so the best place to start would be a thorough physical examination by your veterinarian. If you can make a video of the shaking to show him that might be helpful, especially if it does not happen all the time. If you can make a video you can also post it here, or on the internet and send me the link, so I can see what Max is doing.
Let me know what else I can answer or help with. Rebecca
It could be cold, it could be pain, or it could be some kind of neurologic problem but dogs don't get Parkinson's at least.
This breed is prone to neck pain, so I would have him checked out and see if starting him on pain medication that is safe for dogs and safe for his heart helps him. Dental problems can be very painful as well.
Let me know what else I can help with or answer.
