Hello. Our 9-week old puppy shakes uncontrollably... He is happy, has an appetite, drinks, wags his tail, and yet he shakes when he lifts his head or stands, often falling over. He does not shake when he is resting. We had a blood test done. He is slightly anemic and has a slightly lowered white blood cell count but still within the normal range. He started doing this two days ago. Please give us suggestions! We are baffled.

Here is a link to the video of our puppy:

Does he do this all the time or does it come and go? What does you vet suggest as a next step? It's against rules here to suggest diagnoses, but we can try to offer suggestions for things to talk to your vet or a specialist about.
Thank you for your reply! It does not come and go. The tremoring is very constant unless it is resting as we said in the previous message... Our vet suggests to wait it out, he says his immune system is strong. We recently had other puppies with distemper. But our vet thinks this is something unrelated, he actually does not know what it is. So we would love more suggestions and questions.
Yes, we agree with that. We will do what we can. It is something new, started just a couple of days ago. The puppy was very healthy before.
