Why small dogs tremble: determine the reasons

Tremors are rhythmic, convulsive contractions of muscle tissue. Tremor is caused by various factors - stress, sex drive, food stimulation, severe physical fatigue, defensive and protective reaction. In addition to natural causes, muscle tremors can be a symptom of a disease. Dogs of small and dwarf breeds are more prone to tremor due to structural features, metabolism and organization of nervous activity.
