Customer Question

My dog, a purebred Carolina dog is about 3 1/2 months old. She suddenly began shaking about two hours ago & her motions have a definite jerking motion. What's wrong with her?

Aloha! You're speaking to Dr. Michael Salkin
I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Shaking and a "jerking motion" can define partial seizures or tremors/myoclonus. Has the behavior continued? Are her vaccines up to date? Could she have ingested a prescription drug? Was she treated with any medications or insecticides?
