I have a little Boston Terrier girl who is 2 1/2 years old. Sometimes she will sit there and just shake almost like she is cold. I know she's not cold because it's warm in the house and she does it sometimes in the summertime. They only thing I can think of is she isn't feeling well and that's why she shakes. It's not an everyday thing, just occassionally. Does anybody know why she maybe doing this?
Most of my Bostons shake if they're excited, or anticipating a treat, or just enjoying attention. I can't think of one of my dogs that has not done this at one time or another. I imagine your little dog is just like most Bostons, very sensitive, and loves attention.
I realize you posted your question in August but I just found this forum. I have a question for you, is she shaking or is it more of a shivering, slightly jerking motion? The reason I asked this is because my child has seizures. Was not sure what was going on at first because I also thought she was just shaking. As the months past and this continued to happen I noticed she was actually having a siezure. My husband was so distraught that he stayed up all one night on the computer researching. Bottom line to this story is this, we make her food from scratch and she has been seizure free for 8 long months now. We fed what we thought was quality food to begin with but the change in her health and appearance has been dramatic. Before changing her food, the little spot in front of her ears was thinning drastically plus she was shedding which is uncommon for boston's. Her coat is now exceptionally shiny and all the hair has filled in around her ears. So, we made the change because of the seizures and those have stopped plus we got the added bonus of other health benefits as well. In case you are wondering, Yes, we did take her to the vet and he wanted to put her on seizure medication. We did not agree with this method. Back to the internet we went. That's where we stumbled on to this solution. If you have not already found this website www.dogtorj.com, check it out. It is time well spent. It made my husband and I realize there is no sense in putting a bandaid on it when something so simple will eliminate the problem. Reminds me of some of my doctors:) Sorry to rattle on, I hope this helps and I wish you many years of happiness with your boston.
I have had two Bostons that developed arthritis. Shaking because of pain led to their diagnosis. They both took/take daily pain killers. My 13 year old girl has been on tramadol for years. She has been greatly helped by acupuncture as well.
