Shaking Uncontrollably

by Lana Basha
(Beirut, Lebanon)

Dear All,


Since he was a puppy, my Jack Russel, Renito, shakes uncontrollably.

It usually starts from his right leg, and makes the rest of his body vibrate softly.

I have asked several vets, but none so far have given me an answer.

I live in Lebanon (Middle East) where vets are not really trained to deal with anything past basic health care. I'm worried that if I neglect the shaking, I may be oblivious to a much bigger problem.

Please let me know if you may have any insightful information on this.

Thank you,
Lana

Jack Russell shaking

Hi Lana,
I'm not a Vet so I can't really give you a specific answer. Hopefully your Vet has done a thorough examination to rule anything out. Some Jacks are prone to a little shaking and some Jack's have what is called White Shaker Dog Syndrome (usually in small white colored dogs). This can be a term you can research online and consult with your Vet as well to see if it matches your little guys issues. Check youtube because some people post pictures of their pets with similar symptoms. Our thoughts are with you, please keep us posted on what you find out!
