    Default Head shaking

    Last night Atticus was playing as usual...he started shaking his head like he was wet, nit really like the tremor videos I've seen. He does when he gets excited and we were playing so I didn't think too much about it. This morning when I woke, I found that he had thrown up during the night. Atticus will throw up if he gets too hot and when I went to sleep he was under his blankets. I clean his ears once or twice a week with a baby wipe so I don't think it was waxy build up...any advice?

    Hi there, sounds like maybe he ate something that did not agree. My Nelson suffers with allergies and if he eats something he is allergic too, his ears flair up instantly and I start to see the head shaking and I'm thinking with him being sick also?

    Hope he is ok now.

    I'm sure others will say the same, keep an eye on him and see if it continues - especially the vomitting.
    Is his other behavior the same? Still eating and drinking, etc??

    As for the ears (if it is a separate issue?) - I find that Bacon sometimes paws at his ears even thought they've recently been cleaned. Benedryl usually takes care of that - I think of it as an itch he can't stratch.

    I agree with @thesspa.... keep an eye on him and any change in behavior? Also, do not let them stay under the blankets too long -- they can overheat, which what may have caused the vomit.

    It was chunks of food...not orangey at all....he's drinking, playing, and running around like crazy. He's still scratching at his ears a little, but I just cleaned them. Maybe I'll try some benadryl if he keeps it up. Poops are normal too...please bear with me the next couple weeks. We're going to Washington dc for a weekend at the end of march and fat puppy is staying home. We've never been apart except for me working. Im a nervous wreck and my crazy overanalyzing make make an appearance in this forum...no promises although I'll try to leash it

    one other question - just noticed that you list him as being on Royal Canin... have you thought about changing him over to a better grade food in the future?

    Hoping your boy feels better and its nothing! Brutus usually does the same when I am finished cleaning his ears...The vomitting would have me scared also but it could be from being too hot or too active after eating. I would watch him closely and see if any better...I agree with above post on trying a food switch to a better food. Take a look at the Dog Food Reccomendations article and if you need any help please just reach out! Not sure if you have a sitter while your out of town but just make sure who ever is watching him knows what to look for

    LOL - silly us... we really shouldn't snoop

    yes, 1 mg/lb is correct - i give bacon the 25 mg tablets folded into a piece of cheese and down the hatch it goes without a second thought
    in fact, he gets excited everytime I go in the medicine cabinet becuase he thinks that means he's getting a treat
