My dog keeps shaking

I have two Jack Russell dogs. The female is about 4 years old and my male is about 5 years old. My male some times shakes and I do not know why. Do dogs have panic attacks.

Yes, I do believe that dogs sometimes have episodes similar to panic attacks if they are afraid. Do the episodes have a cause, does the dog appear to be scared? I would definately discuss this with your vet to rule out any neurological issues or other health problems.

I agree with Teri. Take him to your vet to rule out any health problems. Good luck and keep us posted. :fingerscr :goodvibes:

Btw, post your update in the Health Forum. :) Also, welcome to the forum and we'd love to see pics of your furkids. :D
