So our Australian Shepherd is having a rough go. I think we’ve about rid her and the house of fleas, but she’s still itching a lot. We’ve had her wear a cone for multiple days to keep her from biting herself and rubbing her nose on the carpet. She has a cut above her nose that starts to bleed when she rubs it on the carpet.

Today I noticed she was shaking her head involuntarily for a few minutes. I took the cone off and it continued for a few minutes. Really freaked me and the wife out. She wasn’t convulsing or anything. She acted totally fine during the episode. I have a vet appointment set up for after work tomorrow for her itching, so I’ll mention the tremor as well. I feel really bad for her. She’s had a tough go of things since my wife and I had our first baby five months ago. She use to be the center of our world and now she just watches us with the baby and looks depressed.

Just throwing out a guess, but ear infection?

Would an ear infection cause involuntary head shakes? It almost seemed like she was shivering from the neck up. I really don’t know. She hasn’t done it since.

Go get her checked for ear infection or ear mites.
