I have some questions, to help me best advise you about Charlie.

Does Charlie tremble every time he's lying down or just sometimes?

Is Charlie behaving normally otherwise?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
he trembled sometimes he is quite normal by has gone completely dead and his eyesight has deteriorated
There are a few things that could be playing a role. It can be a sign of weakness, pain or neurological (nerve) degeneration that comes with old age. For the moment you can just monitor him but if he starts to show signs on walks or when standing then having your vet check him over and maybe giving him a trial course of pain medication may help.
