Maddie had to go to the emergancey

I got home from work yesterday and Maddie was just laying and wouldn't walk. I took her out side and she did the same thing .She was very lethargic. I took her in and all her vitals are fine. The vet didn't think she was in pain. The only thing she found was she was a bit dehydrated.She gave her some fluids and it really seemed to help.
Maddie had access to her water all day. She hasn't been eating as much. I'm wondering if any of our breeders on the forum know if a female can get exhausted from Zoey and her humping all day ? She seems better today. All of our dogs are a bit off as far as perfect poo because we changed to Acanna. We did it very slow over a three week time. She still wont drink water and I gave her canned food last night. was thinking of adding something to the water today. I know she would love a bit of broth.

Sorry, no words of wisdom here, I just want to say that I hope Maddies feels better soon! I like the idea of the chicken broth as fluds.

Hope Maddie is feeling better, you might try adding water to her "can food", sometimes I have to do this for Boo Boo if he is having an off day, or he has had a few too many dry dog treats. To add it you let it sit for about 5 mins before mixing. Be very careful in giving a dehydrated dog broth that has a lot of salt, it can make it worse. Follow what the vet has told you. Hope she perks up soon.

Hope Maddie is feeling better.
She has access to her water, any way you change refresh it for her a few times a day? Maybe she wants fresh water. Very odd. I hope she will be ok.

Well I took her to my friends house so she could be watched better to see if she is drinking and eating. She had runny poo's but that might be from the caned dog food. Otherwise my friend says she is doing good. I had to work late tonight. This morning I noticed the larger dog humping her so I think she just had way too much yesterday.I also called a breeder friend and she said that bitches in heat can sometimes get that way and not feel like eating or drinking. I do think she may have been in pain.
