Help for my 14-year-old dog whose head shakesShe is 14 years old and she is having some tremors of her head . It shakes up and down when she lying with her head raised and then she has to rest her head (lie on side) . It also happens when she is standing but then she also tilts to one side , mostly right and it seems she cant move her legs and body , sort of freezes . If she concentrates (focus) , like when she wants a treat from us or when she is anticipating like eating time, the shaking also happens .Its also worse after noon and at night . She also nows has mostly a preocuppied ,worried expression and has difficulty going down the stairs . She also loses some of her bowel control when she gets excited and seems to defecate without her knowledge . She doesnt like us to do anything with her, like putting leash , taking away her food, getting off the sofa and bites really hard to draw blood . She used to like sunbaths but i have not seen her in the sun for some time now . when its cold she likes to get under the covers and sleep warm . When she was a puppy she had a skin issue but we treated it (allopathic unfortunately) and since then she hasnt had any health problems except for vomitting and upset tummy . She used to throw up a lot of a yellow bile , especially if she spent a lot of hours without food . She also has a tummy which makes lots of noises like a cat miaowing .she likes more strangers than us of the family , specially if they are men or boys . when she sees a dog she does a display of growling and some jumps but this has lessened with age . She is growing 2 brown warts, one over her right eye and the other in inner left leg .When she wants something ,like dinner , or when she gets on a chair and wants to get down (although she can get down perfectly well by herself)she barks without stopping , and sometimes rears up and down .She is very jealous of another little dog we have and has got into a fight several times . she had pyorrhea and most of her teeth fell out. She also seems to have cataract , more in the right eye . She doesnt like us standing up to her and once bit me because i stared at her . she also sometimes is staring into space like as if she has seen a ghost , mostly around 8-9 pm and some times seems disorientated as if she doesnt know where she is .Hes constituition is a tall,slim, light boned one.She doesnt like her feet to be touched, especially back feet but will tolerate some caresses on head and ears and body and even ask for them but no shifting of her position.She will also snatch food from our hands and plates if we dont take care .When we take her out for walk, she doesnt like the walking part , she likes to sit on a bench and watch the passers-by .

she sneezes when she smells something strong like car fumes , gasoline and she likes to lick her paws and her left side where her leg meets her belly .
