AN175 Feline Tremors and/or Shaking, Essential Tremors, Canine Generalized Tremor Syndrome (GTS). GTS is also called steroid responsive tremor syndrome or white shaker dog syndrome (full body tremors), head tremors which can be seen in canines.
Also did you know that essential tremor in dogs is a common condition that can occur in dogs, especially as they age?
Though they can occur in younger dogs, tremors are commonly seen in dogs that are two and older. Also known as Physiologic tumors, these age-related tumors often involve the pelvis. Dogs that have these tremor conditions are referred to as “shaker dogs”.
Terrier breeds are the most common to get the condition. It has also been found that white dogs are primarily affected and other breeds are predisposed such as Bulldogs, Labrador Retrievers, Chow Chows, and other common breeds.
There are dogs that do get head tremors like the most common cases in humans, but dogs are generally affected in different areas by essential tremor.
All canine breeds have known to be affected, some holistic veterinarians believe that vaccinations side effects or allergic reactions to them can cause neurological damages.
Generalized Tremor Syndrome (GTS). GTS is also called steroid responsive tremor syndrome or white shaker dog syndrome. First noticed in small, white dogs such as Maltese and West Highland white terriers, it can occur in dogs of any size, breed, or color.
Dogs shake and tremble for all kinds of reasons -- excitement, pain, old age, even nausea.
If Shivering and trembling came on suddenly it may be symptoms of something serious -- like poisoning, kidney disease, or injury. So, if your dog suddenly starts trembling or shivering, it's important to take note of other symptoms such as diarrhea, vomiting, or limping. Then talk to your vet right away.
Use an alternative as in the homeopathic canine oral nosodes.
The dog's body has quite strong tremors all over the body and it comes and goes. Some dogs have seizures after chemical drugs or vaccines or even food allergies can trigger these neurological reactions.
Some particular breeds like the Bulldogs, Boxers and Dobermann have been known to have HEAD tremors (or bopping of the head). Also similar nerve dysfunction. We do recommend that any chemical products be reduced and avoided where possible to rule out side effects from these.
There are always safe alternatives for worming, flea, and heart worm, vaccines that will not cause any harm to your pet.
Next is to work on a natural diet "allergy free" one. Even natural foods like corn, wheat, beef, and pasta can cause allergy reactions, however.

Medicinal Herbal Uses
Valerian - Valerian Root is known for its properties as a natural sleep aid and muscle relaxant.
Hops - (Humulus lupulus) Contains xanthohumol, which enhances iodine uptake by the thyroid and represses the activation of the pro-inflammatory molecule NF-kappaB, thereby decreasing pro-inflammatory cytokines TNF-alpha, IL-6.
Scullcap - (Scutellaria Laterifolia) skullcap is used for trouble sleeping (insomnia), anxiety, stroke, and paralysis caused by stroke. It is also used for fever, high cholesterol, “hardening of the arteries” (atherosclerosis), rabies, epilepsy, nervous tension, allergies, skin infections, inflammation, and spasms. The plant had been reputed to be an herbal tranquilizer, particularly in combination with Valerian, but has fallen into disuse. Scullcap has traditionally been used to treat nervousness, irritability, and neuralgia, as well as for its sedative properties.
Passionflower – (passiflora caeurulea) any of the symptoms associated with hypothyroidism (depression, insomnia, headache etc) can be alleviated with the use of this natural plant.
