Trembling Front Legs

Looking after the health and welfare of your Schnauzer can be a full time job. You will find information on neutering, spaying, vaccinations, vet visits, upset tummies, Schnauzer bumps and much more here. Ask a question and someone will have had a similar experience. We also appreciate updates on how your Schnauzer is recuperating. A separate section is dedicated to our older Schnauzers.

Hi Carole, welcome to the forum. I remember starting this thread, seems ages ago now. Is the trembling when he doesn't have any weight on his leg so leg is touching the ground but not firmly? If so then it does appear that quite a few schnauzers have this "quirk". If it is something different then try and explain it. Your post has reminded me about Otto doing this and actually I haven't seen Otto do it for months.

Hi Carole, that's not a very pleasant response from Yoki's breeder at all. I wrote about our boy, Monty a couple of posts before yours I think. He is now 8 months old and still has the leg tremble thing on occasion! Like Julie just said, it's very much when he sits but doesn't have weight on his leg. Mention it to your vet if you are worried. Is Yoki still in need of his second vaccination - this might be a good time?
