    @1badchicken
    Head bobbing is very common in bulldogs especially one who hasn't been eating well and may be experiencing low blood sugar. There would be alot more symptoms, I would think..if it was seizures. But...keep in mind, the ONLY experience with seizures that I have are epileptic seizures. There are so many things out there that can cause seizures. Epilepsy is the diagnosis they give when they rule out everything else and they have no "reason" behind the seizures.

    I have dealt with head temors...in the past with our first bulldog over 20 yrs ago...His case was discussed at Ohio State even. Later...our older dog Tank developed them...they've came to know more over the years. And...low levels of sugar [which makes sense since your dog isn't eating] will cause head tremors. It amazes me how some vets are knowledgeable on this topic and others not so. It may have been a fluke that your dog had them once taken off of oxygen. Head tremors are not considered seizure related... And this sounds exactly what might be going on.

    @1badchicken I would go along with what a lot on here have said, and suggest it could just be head tremors rather than a seizure. Nobody truly knows what causes the head tremors as it seems to be different with different dogs, but obviously there has been a link in some dogs to low blood sugar levels. If Cali isn't keeping food down then her blood sugar level could be low. A CT scan is VERY expensive PLUS I would have thought that they would want to get her stabilized and get some food down her before they start sedating her for CT scans.

    I really think they should be trying the bland diet too ... maybe your wife could take in some for Cali to try. It's cooked white rice mixed with cooked chicken or hamburger meat. They love it and it might be easier on her stomach and her little throat.

    I agree...it doesn't add up...Anyone who's had sick dogs...know their vet has suggested this to them. But to feed the dog a second time so soon after it threw up. Sounds so off to what I've experienced a vet telling me how to handle situations such as this. Now...a CT. When the dog isn't even stable. That makes no sense...especially with the breed and their being hard to put under anyways.

    I would ask your reg. vet to make a phone call and find out what's going on...second opinions never hurt. It just doesn't read right to me.

    Ok guys sorry for the late update
    I failed my exam this morning, due to the situation my heart was else where

    Good news
    Cali has been released
    Her head bobbles have been due to low sugar levels as previously stated
    She will not require a CT scan at this point
    She will be going to our vet to get a follow up appointment

    Guys y'all have been great and so supportive
    I will provide an update when she comes out of the neurologists appt
    We surely could not have done this with out your support
    Cali is going home today
    We will keep her isolated from Bella to ensure she is calm and recovers

    Wow, she even looks so much better. I am so happy she can finish her recovery at home.

    My suggestion is to watch over her very closely and if you notice more head tremors developing then get a work up, it may just be the blood sugar and a specialist will automatically test right off the bat. I went through this with my Bella, every test imaginable and it ended up being something totally different.

    I can't wait to see more growing photos.

    Always with me
