Hello all,

Chipie (2) shakes from time to time in different situations. I would like to understand why?

She will shake:
in the morning when we are getting ready (she comes with us mostly)
when she is on her cushion asleep or not.
when we take her out and she has been sleeping.
when she is on my lap awake.

She doesn't shake all the time but i would like to know if you have experienced your PUG shaking and why it happens.

She does have a nervous problem because her reflexes are to fast, she has problems coordinating her legs.

We were told that anything could happen but she is a happy little critter and we will spaye her on friday.

thanks for any of your experiences!

That does sound odd. I know many dogs shake when they're in pain. I would make asure the vet dboes a full blood panel before having her spayed just to rule out any possible issues.

How old is she? How severe is the shaking?

Does she seem happy while she shakes or upset?

The shaking while getting ready could be from sheer excitement.

When she's on her bed - have you been down on the floor with her to know if she's getting a draft or not? Have you tried having her sleep in different places? Do you have a crate that you can put a blanket over to create more of a cave atmosphere? Does she shake while sleeping or just while she starts to go to sleep?

Try to document as much as possible to explain to the vet - maybe they can help you pinpoint it. Good luck with the spay!

I'm no expert by any means, but was going to suggest the same things as Jennifer and Jayne already have. They've given you some really good advice. The more documentation you have concerning her shaking episodes that you can share with your vet the better. And the blood work and other extras before the spay I feel are extremely important -- especially if she's having a problem. Best wishes and good puggy vibes to you and Chippie for both the spay and determining the cause of the shakes. We'll be thinking of you.

She is 2 years old.

She doesn't shake all the time but at least once a day, i was thinking excitement aswell, or maybe cold due to her cushion on the floor.
She doesn't shake when we are on the couch or when we are in bed.

if her shaking was pain related wouldn't i see that? i mean other symptoms aswell? Or is it that pugs are quite resistant to pain?

I don't quite know what direction to go?
she had thourough tests when the vet saw her walk the first time(she was 1 when we got her), basically when you stand a paw on the toe the paw doesn't fall into place (backwards) it basically folds under (towards the front), i hope that made sense. Anyway the blood tests didn't show anything abnormal, it is all in her spine or spinal duct. The vet said we should wait a few months to see how it goes and since it seems fine and so that she doesn't get to much strain from hormones on top of her condition we decided to spay anyway and we watch her weight so she doesn't get to much weight on her legs.

Thinking of which, could it be because she isn't "fat" enough and i should keep her warmer? She is 5,5 kg i'm not sure what that is in lbs my converter says 121 pounds but that seems alot but i am not familiar with that system.

oh dear don't quite know what to think now???? Confused

Perhaps she could be nervous, cold, excited, my Lilly shakes from time to time and alot of the time is she either cold, neverous or excited. Alot of toy breeds shake if anyone has ever seen a toy poodle, min pin etc they shake quite frequently.

If she has spinal problems I would say that probably pain is the reason she is shaking. Dogs very seldom yelp when in pain, unless it is just too excruciating a pain to bear. Usually pain will manifest itself with shaking, or lethargy. Dogs do not often show obvious signs of pain, because showing signs of pain in the animal world gets you eaten, because it shows weakness. I would not put too much weight on her, as any extra weight over what she should weigh only puts more stress on the spine.
I would suspect, that if she only shakes occasionally, that the times she is shaking are times when she is uncomfortable, or in some pain.

I will keep all your possible reasons in mind and just monitor her a few days.

And will speak to the vet on friday to see what she thinks.

Some of the shaking is 100% excitement for different things but the rest i will have to keep an eye on.

Thanks also for all your advice!

Hope she is going to be ok, we love her to bits!

Chipie's mum !
