    Default Bubba just started having head tremors

    Hi, Bubba will be two in April. Yesterday he started having head tremors that made him look like a bobblehead...he could provife He was completely alert during these episodes and after acted as though nothing hppened. I upped some video footage to YouTube to show the vet but he could not provide any insight. I did research and it appears to be idiopathic head tremors and not seizures. I am posting links to the videos in hopes that someone has heard or had experience with this... Thanks

    Yes, very common in bulldogs and some other breeds. as long as your baby is alert -- he is fine, no pain or after effects. Give him a treat of any type during the tremor as it distracts the muscles and the tremor stops. It is scary, but harmless.

    There's a few bulldogs here that have experienced it and said that giving them a treat like peanut butter will help stop it. Can't remember exactly, but I believe it has to do something with their blood sugar.

    Oh and welcome to the thread! Bubba's quite a looker!

    Welcome to EBN! I can see Bubba is very loved. Like everyone said, give him a treat and see if it redirects his brain processes. Glad you're here!

    Thank you all for confirming and welcoming me to the forum... I am actually at work hence why it took so long to respond... It definitely was scary but I am glad I researched it because the vet wanted to treat it like seizures and I would have been looking at about 6 grand for them to tell me nothing

    It's very scary indeed. I haven't personally experienced it with Wilson, and I hope I never do, but it's nice to see your Bubba and posts like this to know that if something ever happens like this I'll know what to do and that's if they're alerts, all's good. Bubba's a good looking boy. How often does he have them and how long have they been lasting? I'm just curious for my own knowledge.

    Does anyone know what causes them?

    to EBN too.

    Some believe it is low blood sugar, some to do with the weight of the head, and others dehydration.... guess they really are not sure, but all agree they are harmless. I have an article, i will try to find and post

    Wow, 10 mins, hopefully members who've experienced them with their bullies will share their insight. I don't think Bubba is having seizures. Seizure shakes are more violent and he wouldn't be responding to any distractions.

    Here's a thread about one of our fave bullies here, VegasR, having a seizure @Libra926 . You'll be able to find a few more if you do a search.
