Front left leg twitching


Recommended Posts

We are probably just overreacting, but Miriam is 13 years old and we worry about her.  

Tonight we noticed that Miriam's front left leg was twitching.  At first we thought she was dreaming, but the twitching continued after we woke her up.  As she has aged, Miriam seems to sleep with her eyes open more that she did when she was younger.  She doesn't seem to be stressed or in any pain other than her old age aches and pains and stiffness.

Has anyone else's greyhound have leg twitches as they age?

Thanks from a worried mom and dad.

Annette..my Shannon did something similar with her back leg.  I took her to see a neurologist and she was diagnosed with benign essential nerve tremors.  Basically, it’s a condition that may develop with age-much like we may do in our own twilight years.

Thanks.  It hasn't happened that we know of since.  

Anything that seems unusual to us we worry about now.  She is our second oldest greyhound ever.  Poots dad was our oldest when we lost him at 14.
