    @Jreed82 , yes , it happens around the age of 2. Mocha had her first tremor when she was 10 or 11 months old. She doesnt get them often(thank God) and they do not last a long time. She is completlly alert and I usually snap her out of them by offering her a drink in a cup (you may also offer a treat) I offer her milk(not a lot of it just enough to get her attention) Dont worry, he will be ok

    @Jreed82
    First thing on your list of things to do is find a bulldog vet. They would know right off the bat that these are head tremors and that they are very common. You did an awesome job with providing videos...and I'm just flabbergasted that the vet had NO insight.
    In my experience..since Vegas has both seizures and head tremors, tremors usually can be caused by excitement (@kazzy220 Maggie had tremors over carrots) (@KMARINO Vegasb has tremors over someone touching his stinky monkey) OR it can be low blood sugar related. These guys have fast digestive systems, which can cause an imbalance of glucose levels in the blood. Plain yogurt is another treat to help raise the levels.
    In the case of VegasB...you just have to leave his stinky monkey alone. No Touchy touchy.
    There are different triggers for the head tremors....some of us have found those triggers and some of us have not.

    Good luck with your pup. And please, consider finding a more experienced vet...one who knows about the bulldog breed.

    @Libra926, thank goodness that was the only head tremour Vegas had over Joe playing keep away with Stinkey Monkey. Monkey is DEFINITELY a NO touchy-touchy!!!! When My son brings his dogs over I put Monkey in the bedroom and shut the door just to insure he is not taken or played with by the other dogs.

    One of mine got head tremors the first year of his life. We were told to give some plain vanilla yogurt or some ice cream and if you don't have that a teaspoon of karo syrup will do.. It seemed to help. They last for about a year and now he is 3 and hasn't had anymore. Good luck with your baby it is very common in bulldog's and doesn't seem to have any lasting effects whatsoever. And no most vets have not a clue unless they deal directly with bulldogs all the time which isn't easy to find. You should keep track of the tremors and if it gets worse over time you should seek further help.

    Glad I saw this thread & the info about head tremors. Penny has had it happen twice in he last few months...both times when she was over excited. Once over a remote control helicopter & then over a basketball air pump (silly dog...). It started with quick small tongue movements & then went on to her jaw. As soon as we removed the excitement it stopped. I wondering if it could be excitement. Thanks @Libra926 for mentioning the tremors that @kazzy220 & @KMARINO experienced with their bullies.

    @Jreed82, welcome to the board & I hope you find the answers you need about your boy!

    This is the video I took of Maggie having a head tremor ... it was over the excitement of being offered a treat which in this case was a baby carrot!!

    You are going to hear all kinds of different theories on what causes them ... but as many on here have already said there are a number of different things that can make them suddenly happen.

    Maggie doesn't get them often, the one we taped was the last one she had until just before Christmas when she suddenly had another very minor one.

    Given how common these head tremors are, and not just with english bulldogs, I am amazed how many vets there are out there who don't seem to know what they are, and go rushing into the conclusion that the dog is having a seizure!!!

    Bubba head tremors tend to come from no excitement.. He is having them in the morning when first waking up or if he wakes up in the morning... The majority of them have been on the short end only one was longer.

    The one strange thing I have noticed however is that they said bulldog tremors usually involves shaking their head in a no motion where bubba has been doing it in a yes movement.

    My Gracie also has the head tremors. Hers started a few months ago. Only happend about 4 or 5 times and appear when she is relaxed and about to go to sleep. Her head bobs in a 'yes' motion. She does not seem to be disturbed in anyway.
