    Default Cooper chewing on nothing

    I just caught keeper chewing on something or so I thought. He was really chewing pretty good but when I went digging in his mouth there was nothing. He probably did this for 2 minutes. He would stop when I put my hand in his mouth and when I would take it out he would start chewing again like 3 seconds later.....Is this a tremor or what else could it be!

    I really hope that I was wrong! Im glad you started the thread so everyone can give some advice!!! It just sounds really familiar from what the dr told us to look out for when Brutus had his seziures after surgery bc they didnt know if it was sezuire or tremors! I have seen a couple videos on it and it sounds like it! It could be nothing and I pray that it is! Im sure others will be here soon to tell me how wrong I am!!!

    What! Thor does this all the time. I always just figured whatever it was was lost in his mouth skin. Although that could be bad too...

    O believe me I always find it if he has something. I rubbed up down under over everywhere...there was nothing and if there was it wouldn't have taken him that long to swallow it.....i thought maybe he had a hair in his mouth but then I googled it and it said could be a mild seizure

    Rudy is a master at hiding stuff (leaves, sticks or pcs of the wife's favorite wicker basket) in his mouth. Sometimes I don't find it until 5 minutes later when it is stuck to his upper lip and he has forgotten about it. Don't forget to check under the tongue. I sometimes think they have a pouch hidden in there, something like a hamster or a chipmunk. Double check to make sure he has plenty of fresh water.

    I am 100% positive he had nothing in his mouth. Believe me I had his tongue and out I lifted and felt under his top lip bottom lip basically shoved my hand down his throat and there was nothing in his mouth. And the way he was chewing he acted like it was right there like it would fall out of his mouth. He was doing the head nod like they do when they aare chewing and its just about gone and they don't want to drop it out of their mouth. I know he had nothing. There was nothing to get and there was nothing in his mouth.

    I am not being rude my any means believe me I was feedback and comments from as many of you all as possible. But I am not questioning him having or not having something in his mouth I know for sure there was nothing. the only thing I think it could possibly of been was a hair but I am seriously doubting that also. I think I would have felt or pulled a little of it out the way I had my hand in his mouth. I have found tiny stuff in his mmouth before so I totally know where you all are coming from when you are thinking he might have been chewing on something but it is hidden in his mouth. But Cooper has been throwing up and sick for 2 weeks... you will see my past post about it so I have been watching him like a hawk and I know he didn't have anything. I am just more worried about a tremor because he isn't getting much nutrient because he keep throwing up and I don't want to miss any sign of a tremor if this is one of them!
    Thank You all again! I truly appreciate it!

    My Vegas...aka VegasR (because he is red) has epilepsy. @KMARINO's Vegas aka VegasB (because he is brindle) has had one episode of tremors. They started when his daddy aka BAD Joe, took stinky monkey from VegasB and pretended like he was sucking on it. This caused VegasB extreme anxiety and the tremors started. Since then, BAD Joe is not allowed to touch stinky monkey or Hussy Bear.

    Now, my Vegas has had tremors also, usually during sleep. I think his are related to his epilepsy.

    @kazzy220's Maggie Meatball has suffered head tremors...over food. Simply offering her a carrot started the tremors.

    This could be a tremor.
    VegasR does this, but they are called bubblegum fits. Basically, it's like he has something stuck to the roof of his mouth and he can't swallow it or dislodge it. His neurologist said this is a type of seizure.
    2 videos of bubble gum fits.

    This may sound crazy to you, but maybe Cooper is having reflux and trying to get rid of that taste. His vomiting might also be related to reflux. I am just wondering because reflux causes these issues with humans!
