There is medication but it can ineffective or dangerous for dogs. Some vets are too quick to prescribe it and mistake head tremors for epilepsy.

Head tremors are very common in breeds like boxers, bulldogs, and dobermans. Head tremors aren't really dangerous there more of an annoyance to your boxer. They're often caused by a deficiency in calcium and glucose. You can counteract the symptoms by giving your boxer dog some karo syrup, peanut butter, ice cream or frozen vanilla yogurt with honey.
