    Default Bocephus is at the animal hospital and I am freaking out.

    I took Bocephus in for his surgery this morning and I wasn't five miles down the road when they called me and said he was having tremors. I've never noticed anything but in the mornings his teeth will occasionally chatter before he eats. I thought he was just excited but the vet said it could be excess fluid on his brain or epilepsy. I can't afford the MRI today and I feel like a horrible Mom for not knowing he was shaving tremors.

    They won't put him on meds until there is an MRI and I am so worried about him. He has insurance but I just need to save up to pay it out first. They said they think it was safe to do his eye surgery so I am wandering around the mall waiting to hear from them.

    this poor boy can not catch a break

    Oh no. I hope his surgery goes well and you hear he is resting soon. Isn't head tremors a benign thing for bullies to have?? I thought alot of them have them. Why would thy jump right to epilepsy?? I'm not really familiar with these though, so maybe other members have a thought??

    Kori, I'm so sorry, NOT a great time to hear of something else to worry
    about! Hopefully, it is not epilepsy or other bad news, many bullies have
    tremors that cause no problems. No guilt either, it's hard to know every
    thing, so many bullies do weird stuff all the time that's normal (for them).
    Please keep us updated~praying for y'all right now!


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    Praying for you & Bocephus. Since you're wandering around the mall it may be tough to read the thread about tremors. It made me feel a lot better about Roscoe having one the other day. Seems odd they jump right to epilepsy. Good luck today. Please update us on how today's surgery goes.

    That's awful, I hope the surgery goes well. Stay strong Kori. They'll figure it all out. Poor guy, I wish it would all go away and he could just be happy.

    Maybe it is just head tremors. Dozer had those a month or so ago, and I rushed him to the hospital. She said it was normal for bullies and nothing to worry about. If he is alert when he is having them then there is nothing to worry about. Dozer was walking toward me with his head shaking like crazy. Very scary, but vet said nothing they can do nor does it hurt them. Look up English bulldog head tremors on youtube. Hoping that is all it is. Hang in there and keep us posted on your darling.

    EASY... it is probably just tremos due to the stress of the situation. BREATHE and do not rush into an MRI. Give time to recover form the procedure and monitor him once he is home for any regular occurances.
    @Libra926 can help you with some insight on epilepsy.

    Sneding lots of hugs and prayers to you and Bocephus!!!

    The tremors could just be from not eating and being nervous from being at the vets. Some think the tremors are caused by low sugar levels. Hopefully this is all that is wrong with him.

    I just love all of you. I'm back sitting in the mall and read through the tremors article. I feel much better but damn that vet freaked me out. He was talking about water on the brain and seizures and I know they need to give you worse case scenario..... I was extremely worried about Bocephus having his eye surgery but decided to go ahead with the vet's recommendation since his eye bugs him.

    Bocephus' allergies are bad right now, he hadn't eaten and was at the vet with strangers, I am believing with every ounce of my being that is what triggered it. I have only ever noticed his teeth chattering on occasional mornings and it was also probably due to low blood sugar.

    I called them and he's still in the OR but they said things are ok so far.

    Your thoughts and prayers mean the world to me. If I don't get out of this mall soon, I'm going to go broke
