Hi there, sorry to hear Fossie is not feeling well. How old is Fossie? How is his/her appetite? Do you have a thermometer you could use to see if he/she has a fever?

Im sorry, Yes, I have a thermometer, she ate in the morning, normal, she drinks normal, she is 5 months old. She is just calm down, not normal in her, she is an Old English shepherd.

Thank you, ***** ***** her temperature. Put a little Ky jelly or vaseline on the tip of the thermometer and insert it about an inch into the rectum or it beeps. A normal temperature for a dog is 100-102.5 F

Has she had any new food or treats? Any chance she got into something?
