Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 5 months ago.

Are you seeing shaking like trembling or shaking like she'd shake following a bath? If you have a video, can you attach it?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Just her head is shaking.Like someone with Parkensons.
Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 5 months ago.

Can you share a video of what you're seeing? It sounds like this might be neurological.

There is an attachment function on the page that should allow you to post pictures and video. If it fails to load, the files are likely too large. You can also use websites like tinypic.com and youtube.com to upload pictures and video respectively. Once this is done, a set of links will appear. You can then post the link back and I can access them. I’ll be standing by.
