|Some dogs especially older dogs can have tremors in their sleep, Gunner started having them when he was 10 yrs old. I caught them on my phone camera, took it to work and showed the Vets I work with, we determined that he was having little tremors, sorta like involuntary muscle and nerve movements. We put an acupuncture staples in his ears,(we do this with dogs who are having seizures as this is a meridian for the brain)well, this worked, he slept well after that, no more tremors, no more fussing around in his sleep. He actually seemed happier during the day and had more energy. We think the tremors were interupting his sleep, poor him.
Once the staples would start to work their way out his tremors would start to return, so I would just re-do them. This is very easy on the dog and it certainly has helped many dogs.
I agree with the other poster who suggested getting a tape of your pup sleeping and bring it to your Vet. Try talking to a intregrative vet who can do acupuncture if your vet thinks it may be muscle or nerve movements.
