Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
I am so sorry to hear about Aki's condition...
It appears that this is a form of neurologic problem with this shaking and jerking. It could be a form of Epilepsy which is petite ma seizures or another form of brain lesion such as brain tumor. The fact that her ears are standing straight up in an odd position places tetanus in the differentail list. If this continues, you will have to take your sweet Aki to your vet fr an exam....there are many things that can cause these neurologic symptoms such as Infectious, cancer, epilepsy or brain lesions or head trauma. Your vet will have to determine through testing what is causing this in order to treat your sweet girl correctly.
Does that make sense to you?
