Wenn dein Hund zittert: Ursachen und Handlungsempfehlungen

If your dog is shaking: causes and recommendations for action

Trembling in dogs can have many causes and dog owners are often worried when they notice this behavior in their four-legged friend. As a professional advisor, I would like to give you an objective overview of possible causes and corresponding recommendations for action.

1. Excitement and Overstimulation Some dogs shake with excitement, especially in anticipatory situations such as feeding times or upcoming walks.

Recommended action: Maintain a quiet environment and try to avoid excessive excitement. Regular activities and training can help with this.

2. Cold Dogs, especially those with short coats or smaller breeds, may shiver in low temperatures.

Recommended Action: Consider dressing your dog in a coat or sweater in cold weather and keeping him in a warm environment.

3. Fear and stress Unfamiliar situations, loud noises or new environments can trigger stress reactions and thus tremors in dogs.

Recommended action: Create a safe and calming environment for your dog. Training and desensitization can also be helpful.

4. Medical Causes In some cases, tremors may be a symptom of an underlying health condition.

Recommended action: If the tremors occur for no apparent reason or if other symptoms occur, please consult a veterinarian immediately.

Conclusion Tremors in dogs can have various causes. It is important to identify the exact cause in order to respond appropriately. If you are unsure or have persistent symptoms, you should always seek advice from a veterinarian.
