    Default Trembling when handled

    I took Rimbaud to the vet yesterday and she was given her worm medicine, now she is jumpier than ever and actively trembled earlier when I picked her up.
    Has anyone else had this issue?

    Rimbaud can be found at rimbaud.renton.es - if she feels like it!

    Squiggle can be found surveying her kingdom, no website for this one though...

    It could have been given ivermectin at the wrong doseage. That can cause the symptom you are describing.

    Okay, I've been keeping an eye on her since then and she's been improving. I'll continue to be vigilant - she stopped trembling now but hasn't touched her food last night.

    It might just be that I'm being super paranoid. (I hope it's just that and that she's fine)

    I don't know, I mean she eats her repashy like a champ and the vet found no reasons for concern. She stopped trembling now and is pretty chilled even if we did take several steps back on the whole handling thing.
    My aim was to get her to the stage that I can weigh her without having to chase her down afterwards.

    How is little Rimmy doing today?
    I hope she is well.

    Yeah, she's good. We're back to taking steps forward on the hand taming. She's happy to just sit on your hand/ explore your arm and has completely stopped trembling.
    The nickname is somewhat inaccurate as it's pronounced "rum-bow" or "ram-bow" but Rammy doesn't work so Rummy would be better

    Yeah, even if she occasionally vibrates her tail end at people...
