Default Shake shake shake...shake your..head?

Im not sure if I am posting this in the correct place but I wanted to share these little videos of Morgan. She does this head shake thing all the time, I mean ALL the time! Every time you look at her she does it, its so funny.

Hmmmm i think i would be worried about that to be honest.
It doesnt look right to me.
She seems very tired too.
Have never seen any dog do that.
It could just be a quirk of hers, but to be safe i would go to the vets and get their opinion.
It could be something simple like an inner ear infection, but who knows?
Dont want to worry you, but it's always good to check everything. xx

I would also definitely get that checked out! I have same question about does she do that without the coat? I bet she does! Never seen a dog do that & I'm not sure there's anything wrong with her ears.

oh goodness!!! Get her to the VET TODAY with that video. That is NOT right. That is something neurological going on, perhaps a type of seizure activity. Oh please get her to the vet. I would consider this very close to an emergency situation. Be sure and bring the video so your vet can see it for himself when he gives her an exam.

Totally agree! This video scares me!! I've seen people with this type of movement but never a dog!

We just saw a chihuahua at the vet I work at who was doing something similar, we determined it was a seizure type disorder (kind of OCD type as the dog couldn't stop doing it no matter what) and put the dog on valium for when it has episodes. I agree with the rest of the people YOU NEED TO TAKE HER TO THE VET ASAP! How old is Morgan? Has she ever had full blown seizures? Does she walk in circles? Could possibly be hydrocephalus. The reason I mention hydro is Zoey does something similar when her pressure is up in her head (she had mild hydro).
