Dixie- head shaking

April 12th, 2006, 04:29 PM
Was not asking for vet care, just wanted to know if anyone had seen this before or knew anything about it.
She was just at the vets. and nothing showed up in her blood work.

Old post.

I have a Westie that is four years old.
I know if they have white dog shaker syndrome the whole body shakes.
Only Dixie's head shakes like Katharine Hepburn's head shook.
I saw her do this last month, like she was scratching her ear but her feet were tucked under her.
Last night, after I let the other dog out I went back in the bedroom and saw her do this again.
It lasts only about 15 to 20 seconds.
Anyone here have a dog or know anything about this?
Thanks for any info.

Please specify vet information when posting health questions.

What else has the vet done? You mean, he took blood, said everything is fine, and sent you on your way? :confused: I think you need a new vet if that's the case.
