Shaky pug

August 17th, 2009, 01:52 PM
I am new to this site. Hope i get it right.
I was recently given a pug, Bella at 4mos old. She was fine
for the first 2 weeks. Then her front paw started shaking, then her
right side, front and left legs. Now it seems to be more in all legs.
When she is not at rest it is worst. When she stands still I can see
a twitching in her right hip. She is happy and healthy otherwise.
She runs, plays, jumps and torments my older pug, Smeagol, as
any puppy would. Her appetite is great. I took her to the vet and
she had never seen this and said that as long as she was happy and
healthy not to worry about it. It makes me sad to see her legs jump
and twitch when she is sleeping. I don't know why it started. I changed
her food to Beneful puppy, she was wormed, and I used frontline plus.
These are the only things I can think of.

She may have a reaction to Frontline, some dogs do. Beneful is one of the least nutritious with the most allergens of any commercial dog food, so that will not be of any help, either. I hope you find some answers.

Thanks, It has been at least a month or more since I gave
her that. Would any damage be permanent or does that eventually
get out of her system?
