Welcome to JustAnswer! I am a licensed veterinarian and would be glad to help!

Is he eating and drinking well?

Active and playing normally?

Any vomiting or diarrhea?

all is fine. I noticed it a few times but tonight it is a stronger shake. its when he is resting that I notice it

If her breathing is normal, she is eating and drinking well and playing normally - with no other signs of illness - this is unlikely to be lung disease, heart disease, or even pain/discomfort which could explain the shaking.

If this were something serious - she would be showing some other sign of illness - not eating, breathing with labor, vomiting - something else.

If you are seeing nothing else abnormal - I would not explain this as a serious problem and can not explain this pysiologically.
