Idiopathic Head Bobbing Syndrome

September 4, 2010 -

Hello everyone! My Alaskan Malamute is having a bit of an issue that started this morning. I woke up to her head shaking side to side as if she is saying NO NO NO over and over again. They looked almost like a seizure but she was conscious and walking around and didn’t seem to be bothered by it, but it kind of freaked me out. She had about 15 episodes off and on throughout the day.

She had about 15 episodes off and on throughout the day.

I noticed the day before she wasn’t eating much and when I looked up her shaking I found a couple reasons for it and one was hypoglycemia. So I gave her some bread and she seemed fine for the rest of the day and around 7PM she had a couple more. I also found a couple videos of what it looks like in other dogs:  It’s called "idiopathic head bobbing syndrome." Has anyone ever delt with this before? If so how long did they last, and did they stop over time?
