Pet Care **Guest post from Ellen B.**

Proper pet care has become a priority. Pets are living longer and the new culture where our pets are treated like family members is quite different from dogs and cats being just an animal on the farm!

Good pet care is not expensive. Actually it’s just the opposite….good pet care SAVES MONEY! Preventing disease or catching it in its early stages is far better than treating it once it has had time to progress to a more severe stage. Separate from health care, bonding with your pet creates a happy pet and owner!

Help! Our 6 month old miniature schnauzer is exhibiting what I can only describe as a nervous tick. He moves his head around in quick jerky movements as if an insect is flying around his head. But there is nothing there. It has been going on continuously for almost 24 hours now. It is almost like is hallucinating. It bothers him so much that he whines at times and has stuck close to us the entire time. Has anyone seen this before?

Many Thanks

This type of behavior is often linked to a neurological problem, and may actually be a type of seizure. I would recommend that you have your dog examined by a veterinarian as soon as possible. Good luck with your dog, Dave.
