Exclamation Beamer Shaking - is this normal?

Hi all..

For the 2nd day in a row, Beamer has gotten the shakes after eating lunch! I have not witnessed this since I'm at work. This is what my Mother in Law says.

He is shaking as if he was cold or like a person shakes when they have the chills and/or a fever.. starts and stops..

He was fine the whole time after work yesterday...

Could this have anything to do with his new raw diet? This did not happen after dinner though or any other time in the past 5 days he has been eating raw..

What else could it be???? I think I may call the vet and see...

Thanks!
Ryan

Didn't this also happen when you fed him that stew awhile back?

Ryan, maybe you need to have him checked out. Maybe its NOT the food and something else is going on. I hope it is nothing, maybe a nervous habit? But I would see what you can find online and also ask the vet.

I'm so sorry to hear about Beamer's shaking. I don't want to scare you but has he ever had a liver problem?? I think you should call the vet.

I would call the vet just to be safe - he probably is doing it on purpose cause he wants Daddy to come home from work and play!!

Whe we fed him that homemade stew he was just breathing fast and panting... From what my MIL says, he is actually shaking/shivering.. like he does when we give him a bath, and he shivers in the towl, or during the hair dryer process if he is scared...

I've never seen this during meal times.. i was with him for every meal on sat/sun and monday.. and dinner yesterday...
Very odd?

Is she feeding him the raw and if so is she serving it at a colder temp so that he is shivering due to temperature?

Tell her to watch his breathing..and keep an eye on him tonight real close. Are you there when he eats dinner?

Maybe its just uber cold at your mil's? I hope he's alright.

ryan,
I dont want to scare you but read about liver shunts online. You can talk to you vet about a SA 320 bloodtest or bile acid test. The only reason i mention this is because he is small and his reaction after eating. Pm me anytime. It might not be a shunts but it runs in the breed and its worth checking into
