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
- I can see that this is an old post, however for anyone else having this issue i tracked my dogs tremors while she was on heartworm medication. While it might not be the best choice for everyone i no longer give her heartworm. She went from weekly tremors to a few times per yr. Initially after tracking these tremors I gave her heartworm in the summer only and now not at all. I do get her heartworm test at least once per yr. She is 10 now. She has a rare tremor that occurs while she awake and lasts 30 to 90 seconds.
