My bulldog’s (Mally) head always bobs up and down especially when she’s sleeping. She developed this new behaviour about a week ago and it hasn’t stopped. Obviously we’re just about ready to take her to the vet, but are just searching online to see if we can come up with something first. She is 3 years old now. We feed her science diet and never table scraps. We also give her a vitamin once a day. It’s just an all in one vitamin and is AKC brand. She’s been on the vitamins for about 1 year so I don’t think that’s a problem.
At first we thought this was her just dreaming, then maybe seizures and now after all this head shaking we’re kind of freaked out and getting a little worried. Sometimes the head bobs up and down and other times is shakes more consistently and faster. Please let me know if you have any advice or if you’ve heard of this head bobbing with bulldogs before. – Megan *Notice- this question was lost, but later restored by Dan Weese
We’re recently getting reports of Coconut Oil being used to correct head tremors for bulldogs!
Debbie Kratz said, Gemma, my Bulldog, was 6 or 7 months old when she began to get the head tremors. There is a lot of controversy on the causes… Hormones, excitement, low blood sugar, pain….. Our vet said to start giving her coconut oil daily and she never had them again. It has to do with the nerve cells firing incorrectly and the coconut oil adds the fatty acids.
