    Thanks Bruce for clarifying that. I forgot to say it was Fromms Beef Frittata that I was going to switch them too. I personally love Fromm and most bullies do well on it. May be a trial to find the right Fromm.

    oh poor little guy and poor you.. not to be a total pain in the _ but when switching food do it slowly.. you don't want to have a bowel problem next.. I really feel for you .. I know alot of bullies experience this.. hoping that switching the food will do the trick.. he is gorgeous! Hang in there

    Chunk gets them from food also. And certain meds. We know for sure Benadryl but other antihistamines hassle been okay. Before we had him, he got them either from his food or a medicine as well. It's frustrating and scary, but I've been told them are more of an annoyance (like an eye twitch to us) than anything. No pain to our babies. I am actually switching Chunk's food because he started getting them again. Until the switch is complete, we also spread out his meals to three a day instead of just two. (it seems they can be caused by low blood sugar so we are trying to keep his blood sugar even by feeding more often and it seems to be working!)

    I just learned that it also could be vitamin B deficiency...so you could also try supplementing with that.

    Really?! That's quite interesting! I'll have to look into that too.

    I've started switching his food, couldn't find beef & fritta so I'm trying the white fish. Riisi do you know which supplements? I hope something works! I 'm nervous to leave him alone not knowing what would happen if someone wasnt around to give him ice & distact him. Lucky for me I have an office in my home so im always around.The vet suggested I let one run its coarse (not distact him) to see how long an episode would last. This way I'd be more comfortable leaving him alone. So far I only lasted 3 minutes I feel bad for my poor baby

    Keep us updated on how the food switch works! I just switched Chunk and head tremors are gone. Amazing how much of a difference the food can make.

    Sorry about your baby. Although mine has never had any, and she's not on any kind of special feed, my daughter's girl just had her first one about 3 weeks ago. Seemed to be blood sugar related in Maebull. My daugher started a slightly different feeding schedule and all has been well. She gives her a nighttime snack just before bed. Maybull just turned 2 in November and never had an issue until recently. Hope your problem rectifies itself soon. I know it must be scary.

    My fingers are crossed for you!!! It worked for Chunk so I'm confident there is a good chance!
