Tremors of dog's legs

My dog started experiencing tremors of his legs about four months ago. He is a 10 year old Jack Russell - rough coat.

He has been tested for Lyme's Disease - which was negative. Despite the negative outcome, he was treated with antibiotic two cycles - which seemed to help the tremors.

He also was given Valium - thinking that it was seizure activity, which did not help.

He has had blood work which all have been normal, as well as a urinalysis. Now I have taken him to another vet who did a spine x-ray and a thorough exam - all showed no findings.

Now he is on 30 days of Presiolone 10 mg - which has not helped after about 20 days of treatment.

He is very active and plays, runs in the yard with his companion "Lilly", eats and drinks with no problems. I am a firm believer in homeopathic treatments, and I am hoping that you can shed some light on other options that I may take for my best buddy.

My Online Vet Response for Tremors of Dog's legs
by: Dr. Carol Jean Tillman

For your 10 year old rough coated Jack Russell terrier with leg tremors (ongoing for 4 months), I would suggest seeking a holistic veterinarian experienced in homeopathic remedies. Searching the repertory, there are 187 remedies indicated for 'extremities trembling'.

Of course, a holistic veterinarian will want to research back to what happened 4 months ago when all of this started. Did your dog receive any vaccinations at that time? Have you started applying a stronger tick preventive? (Or perhaps just the accumulation of flea and tick products over the years have caused a problem?) See our page on alternative medicine for dogs, specifically on veterinary homeopathy.

A healthy diet is very important. Avoiding preservatives, artificial colors and by-products is necessary for improving health. Check out some of the good raw dog food diets.

It is possible that your dog has a deficiency in some essential mineral or nutrient. Missing Link Canine Formula and OrthoMolecular Specialties, Mega C Powder are some very good products that may provide some benefit.
