Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello I am Dr. Joey. Thanks for trusting me to help you and your pet today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 16 years of experience. I look forward to working with you.
This does sound concerning. I have a few more questions to ask in order to understand what is going on:
1) How long has he had reduce to no appetite?
2) Prior to his dental cleaning, did he have some screening lab work to ensure he was good to go for anesthesia (CBC, chemistry profile and thyroid check, urinalysis)? Any testing done other than this by his veterinarian to determine why he was not eating before jumping in to do a dental clean?
3)Is he on any medications after the teeth cleaning (e.g., antibiotic)?
4) Does he have any other known long-term health problems?
5) Is he having diarrhea?
Thank you for taking a few minutes to get me some more information.
