    Default Vet vist or no vet visit? WORRIED

    My bullie had severe head seizures early this morning. This has happened once before and the vet didn't find anything wrong with him. I've read up now on the idiopathic Head tremors and it sounds like What Is happening. I stayed home from work today to watch him because we were so freaked out by it. We rant sure if we should take him to the get again. I feel like they will tell us the same thing that nothing is wrong... And frankly think we are crazy. What happens if we are not home and no ones around to talk him out of it or distracting him?

    How do I know it won't turn into real/full body seizures.

    I have read that this could be caused by deficiency in vitamin B. I also know of a bully that hasn't had any head tremors after starting to supplement with vitamin B, it's worth a try.

    I'm have not had any experience with head tremors. I hope you can find a solution. I think the Vitamin B is a good suggestion.

    I'd go with your gut feeling, if it was me I would take him in. I can't think straight when somethings wrong with one of mine, please keep us posted.

    I have no experience with temors or seizures but a friend of mine who also has a bully (Nicky) does have seizures/tremors. They started right at about 1 year old and she took her to a vet and had a full blood workup done to determine what was happening. They ended up putting Nicky on a seizrue disorder medication (light dose) and now she is doing much better. Nicky is a ball of fire and you wouln't even know she had any problems. Good luck.

    Can you try to get video if it happens again? If they are tremors, they are harmless but very scary--- my guy used to sleep right through them and my girl could literally shake it off. A treat of any type is a great distraction if you are with him when they haopen

    Its actually very common specially in bulldogs. I've been told it's because of lack of calcium. Nothing to worry about
