dog maybe having sezures????

Hi I am new here and I hope that I am in the right place. I have a question about my 4.5 yearold APBT Sierra. Yesterday she did this weird thing with her head that I have only seen her do one other time about 2 months ago. She was Laying on the bed and i looked over at her and her head was shaking slightly from side to side, not violently, like she was shivering but only her head. Her eyes were slightly bulging from her head but not lots. this continued for maybe 4-5 min. Then she just stopped and was fine. The whole time she was doing this she seemed coherent to me. I plan on taking her to the vet on Mon, but am still looking for some kind of info. my first thaught was a siezure, but i am not sure as it seems from what I have read it dosn't quite fit her description.

There have been a few threads on head tremors in dogs. I've not experienced them in any of my pets, but if you do a search of the board for 'head tremors', you'll find a few. Here's one long-running one that I believe includes some video:


Good luck with your girl! Let us know how it goes at the vet, please!
