I have a Pekingese that's about 11 months old she is moving her head back-and-forth looking in the air she's licking her paws and her body seems to be jerking

Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet Tefor 35+ years. I would like to asisst You.

What you are describing is a Focal seizure. With her being so young, I suggest she be seen by a Vet for some blood work and ask them to also check for a liver shunt. THis is some information on Focal Seizures, https://www.vetinfo.com/partial-seizures-dogs.html

The jerking, twitching, starring off into space and even licking the paws are all signs. Please try and get a video to take into your Vet, so the can have a visual of what she is doing. To discuss this information please it reply. I would also like you to give 1/2 teaspoon full of karo syrup or Pancake syrup, in case the gucose levels are low and causing the issue.
