I'm not sure if I should be concerned or not. Sometimes when Daisy is sitting, one or both of her front legs shake. I'm not sure why, and she seems to be acting normally otherwise. Has anyone else ever seen this?

Is she concentrated in something when that happens? Sounds weird to me, but I'm no specialist.
Maybe you can try and tape it when it happens the next time?

It's almost like muscle fatigue. Like if you've been lifting a lot of heavy things you're arms will sometimes shake. Very odd

Is she afraid of something? Maggie's legs will shake if she is afraid, like if there are fireworks or if she can smell smoke somewhere.

Vinny has had the front leg shimmy all of his life. It does not effect his activity at all. It is most pronounced after a hard play/running session in the back yard. As long as Daisy is not in any pain or discomfort, I would not worry.

Abby's front right leg (I think, but I'll look next time) shakes also, and has since we brought her home. Vet said it was nothing to worry about. Like Joe's Vinny, Abby's is most noticeable after physical activity.

That's good to hear Joe and Jamie. It is more pronounced after she's been running and playing. It just caught me off guard, but she seems to be fine.

Or maybe she's sitting on a nerve, like our sciatic nerve and that causes it to bounce up and down. Next time you have her to the vet, or if it gets worse, ask about it. Good luck!
