    Just left was in there a long time, he is doing fine. They did some basic neurological checks and said he is ok. I am going to keep my eye on it but it seems that, at least according to this thread, it is somewhat common. Thanks everyone.

    Both mine have had them ! Gracie's are slower and its like she is nodding her head to say "yes", but Oliver's are much jerkyer (sp) and he is moving his head side to side, like he is saying "no". Kinda weird, really unsettling. Both mine have them when they are sleeping !

    I love this board too!

    Those tremors are scary! I guess just make sure it doesn't turn into a seizure, it is if he loses consciousness!

    Hello, Welcome.

    Lots of good comments and advice here.
    Yes, tremors are somewhat common. We have 7 now but only one of them has the tremors.

    What we have found is that if DOZER doesn't drink enough water, he will more likely get them. It also seems to be common in the summer because it is hot, and then he won't drink water outside with the others. So I give him a bowl of water inside every day so I can make sure he is getting enough water.

    The major concern and difference between a tremor and seizure is with a tremor there is no loss of control and awareness. Distracting them will help to snap them out of it. We have also learned that low blood sugar can bring these on as well. So, when Dozer is having one, I give him two Otter pops and within 30 seconds he has stopped. Its Cold, liquid and sugar. He likes the blue and red the best.

    G'Day~

    Bo has done this three times --- and thank goodness for the folks here or I'd have been freaking out big time. I did as I was told; I distracted him with a cookie. The mere mention of the word didn't do it but the eating it did. He's not done it since. Bea's never done that head tremor thing and it looks a lot more scarey than it really is. You were right to be concerned, of course! The tragedy would be if you didn't even notice!

    Dozer seems to have these head tremors more frequant than others. He has had them almost every day, in the morning especially. I distract him as best I can when he does get them, but getting them this frequent isnt normal, is it?

    That does seem to be too often.... what are you doing to distract him? Small treats?

    Treats, getting him to play or pay attention to something else, make him do tricks, stuff like that. Could this be the onset of a bigger problem? What does it typically mean when bulldogs get these head tremors often like this? It seems like he get them every day, usually in the morning or at night. It's heart breaking
