|It's definitely not a seizure, he just acts like he's scared. If I pet him or talk to him he'll stop momentarily. It's not an uncontrolled shaking. It's like a strong shiver.
When he's having a fit he won't even eat the treats, he just eats them later after he calms down. He'll take them, but he just spits them out.
So far the only things that will pause the fits is walking or really excited playing (like, I look like a freak whooping and jumping around with him). Something basic like tug toys don't do it, but fetching and wrestling seem to make him super happy. But then he goes right back into the fit as soon as we stop, even if we've been playing/walking for a while, then he just calms down later.
Is it possible that he's just got too much pent-up energy? Maybe I should walk him more often, or longer? He gets 2 long walks (10-20 minutes), morning and night, and a short walk mid-day (5-10). During the long walks there is a small field where he gets to run around in, the short walks are just around the complex where we live.
I'm beginning to think he's just super-anxious? He's always been very skiddish, and... well, a big scaredy-cat. It just seems to have gotten worse in the last few days.
He was freaking out big time when I got home, but while I typed this I've just been sitting with him and petting him and he's calmed down... falling asleep actually, haha. It doesn't always work, though :/
