    Twitching?! Like seizures? If you are talking about seizures, TAKE YOUR DOG TO THE VET.

    Umm not sure what else twitching could be - head shaking and scratching could be fleas.

    Huh? "blown from my pitbull"?

    What are you talking about? Are you saying you have a pitbull which has injured your 14 year old dog?

    No one here can give you any real advice because you have not given us any real details. From what I can tell, sounds like you have a dog with a medical condition, quite possibly in pain.

    I am not a "run to the vet" sort - but what have you done to help the dog? Here is a start:

    What are the dogs vitals, temp, pulse, respiration and heart heart beat.

    Describe the "twitching" - localized, general? Duration, severity, occurrence? Eyes / mouth involved?

    Animal's current health status? Medications? Underlying conditions?

    Treatments already attempted?

    For some reason I remember a HUGE clusterf**k of a thread involving this poster.

    If this isn't a troll, get your dog to the vet ASAP!

    She probably was talking about being out of previcox, for joint pain. I don't know what joint pain has to do with twitching. All dogs twitch their legs in their sleep, probably. Basically there's nothing to be done but take it to the vet. I have no idea why she thinks a human syndrome like restless legs would apply to dogs. I agree, dani, this poster is one big cluster mess. We'll probably never know what she was talking about, even if she does come back to explain, as she is pretty indecipherable.

    My old dog's left hind leg seems to be twitching quite often when he is sleeping. He is otherwise in good health. I am thinking it is muscle spasms. He is fine when he is awake.

    Who is to say that dogs don't have restless leg syndrome.?

    There is a kind of epilepsy that involves leg twitching as the primary symptom. It progresses from there. Usually at night. My Boston has it. Call UC Berckley vet school or a Neuro specialist. The regular vets miss it.

    OP, take an English class and learn how to communicate with people through written words. In the meantime, take your dog to the vet.
