I have a 14yr old staffie.  He has gone off his food and only wants  mine.  When he sits 1 of his front legs shakes

    (*hugs*).   Getting old sucks.    Try to mix things into his food that is healthy but will entice him.  Some shredded chicken or chicken broth.   My Husky thinks that people food is all he wants, but when he gets hungry enough he will eat his kibble.   As for the shakes my Setter used to do that when he got all.   Try massaging his leg to see if it will help, It could be muscle spasm.    a heated pad may help too.

    I'd try mixing some kind of oily fish in with a dry food tailored to seniors, even a scheap tin of sardines from lidl (I'm in the UK, not sure where you are) does the trick perfectly. You can also try supplements for his joints but I'd definitely take him to the vet to rule out anything serious. Getting old is crap, wish him luck
