Emmie Is Under The Weather
My 15 month old puppy is under the weather. Last weekend Emmie started acting lethargic and did not eat dinner Mon-Wed this week and then yesterday and today she hasn’t eaten at all. She’s drinking water and doesn’t seem to be in pain but all she wants to do is sleep. This is a big departure from her normal behavior, which is high energy. I took her to the vet this morning and her bloodwork came back negative, she doesn’t have a fever, and she didn’t mind him examining her. Here are tests the vet ran:
• Chemistry 17
• Complete Blood Count
• sNAP cPL Lipase Test
He gave me Hill’s i/d canned dog food to feed her for the next 3-4 days but she’s shown no interest in it. Next step is possibly an x-ray tomorrow to see if she has a blockage but I just don’t know. She’s not one to eat a bunch of stuff on the ground or get into trash so I have no idea what she could have eaten that’s made her sick (assuming it’s food-related).
Has anyone else ever experienced anything like this with their furbaby?
