What can cause muscle spasms in neck and head of a dog?

Posted by Debs

Jack is a 6mos mixed breed puppy. He was bitten by a tick and treated with antibiotics/steroids 1 month ago. 2 days ago I noticed that he is having muscle spasms in his neck, jaw, and head.  His ears actually visibly jump.  A couple of times he has collapsed while playing, and screamed in pain.  Other than that he does not seem to be in pain, but I can tell he is reluctant to jump up on the couch, or even to go thru the doggy door.

 I rescued Jack from the pound approx 6wks ago.  His vet care has already cost over $300, and I am broke!!!
