|My dog DeeBo has, within the last few days, started trembling for what seems like no reason. I have tried finding a common link with his fits but there doesn't seem to be one. Randomly throughout the day he will just start shaking and nothing can calm him. I've tried ignoring him, cuddling, playing, doggie massage, treats, toys, and walking to calm him down, nothing works. He will be fine during the walk but as soon as we get back inside he starts shaking and acting scared again. He usually will just sit or lay and shake, but sometimes he gets almost panicky and will jump on my lap and panting heavily. And then, just as randomly, he will be fine. I don't think he is sick, but I feel like it's got to be pretty stressful for him. What can I do to help? Or is there nothing?
I had an Aussie that used to shake (but MUCH worse than DeeBo, plus he would slobber and hurt people trying to claw his way onto their laps, or destroy property in his frenzy) during thunderstorm and we had to use tranquilizers. I'm hoping to avoid that with him. Any help, please?
There have NOT been any storms or rain.
There has NOT been anyone fighting or yelling.
He eats and drinks regularly, just not during a fit.
He gets walked at least 3 times a day.
He has not been vomiting/diarrhea.
He is about 60 pounds.
He has not had any health issues in the past.
