    Scary stuff and I feel for you bro. Hopefully like Jim said he will stop with chewing, like ice cream. He's going to be ok. That video crushed me..
    Thanks man, I had some friends come over last night so I wouldn't leave him alone.....he was as happy as ever and had no negative signs at all. Hopefully the good streak continues!

    Yea Rocco is a little pink above his nose where he scratches himself so hard sometimes....I think I want to go on a regular regimen of allergy meds, you think that's a good idea?

    Are his allergies food environmental or both? Nitschke was both, but food was worse as it was rice and dairy, and i was feeding a rice based food at the time.

    Default Head tremors

    As you can see in the video, you simply touching him got him to stop.
    And as soon as you moved your hand away he started again. Also keep in mind that Bulldogs can develop allergies overnight that they hadn't had in the past. So where he's scratching like crazy because of environmental, he can also suddenly develop an allergy to food.
    Just something to keep in mind if you notice it happening during the winter. Also excitement, stress, extreme anxiety all can cause this. Along with low blood sugar and pain. Withdrawals from anesthesia is another cause. Although when O suffered from withdrawals, her whole body shook, not just her head.

    Rocco is freaking adorable!

    Bifi got his first tremmors about a week ago. i, too, knew immediately what it was. gave him food but it only stopped while he was swallowing the food. we played and it stopped altogether. it WAS very scary. when i saw it my heart sank. and i dunno what triggered it too. but im guessing stress is the probable culprit in our case. Bifi was exactly the way Rocco was in your video.
