Adopted Dog With Shaky Legs

Hey all, a year ago we adopted a lyme disease positive mutt (husky, lab, border collie mix possibly, we're getting the DNA test soon) and she is the most amazing dog. She has shown no signs of the lyme flaring back up since the catcher found her but the one thing we did and have been noticing is her front legs shaking. She is approximately 3 years old and it's not a huge concern as it causes her no discomfort but I am just very curious about what you guys might have thoughts about!

It typically happens when she is sitting and the leg with less pressure on it shakes. Sometimes when she is lying down one leg will shake as well. It's never both. If you grab it, it will continue to shake but if you reposition it, it usually stops. I think it's a muscle related tick but I am so curious to know if anyone else's dogs experience this!

We go to a very good veterinary clinic (which as you all know is expensive!) so we only take the dogs and rabbit there for shots and anything that seriously affects their well being.

I appreciate any and all thoughts/input! Thanks

I think to really know whats going on, its going to take a good Vet and some testing. Anything else is merely guessing. It could be nothing to worry about, or it may be something that should be addressed and treated.
