i have a 13th month old brindle boxer named albert and i woke him up for his walk yesterday morning and his jaw was shaking which stopped immediately after petting. then this morning he was having trouble having a steady stream while urinating at the park. i was wondering if those could be related to the cold mornings in iowa. hes mainly inside in winter months but gets walked 3 or 4 times everyday for 30min to an hour and is eating,drinkin, activity and attitude seem to be normal. any comments or advice would be appreciated.

Hi Zack. When you say his jaw was shaking with it just the lower jaw or was his head sort of shaking back and forth sideways? Like he was saying no, no, no and shaking his head softly. I would recommend a vet trip if you are concerned about these things, or if they continue. Also, with anything like this if you can get a video on your camera or cell phone it may help the vet in diagnosing the issue as it can be hard to describe.
