Hello, my name is***** and I'm happy to help answer your question. I'm sorry to hear that your dog is not feeling well. What is his name?

Rambo
Expert:  Ana Bascunan replied 7 months ago.

Aww that's a cute name. Besides the decreased appetite and decreased energy, has Rambo had any other symptoms over the last few days (vomiting, diarrhea, crying)?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
No, he was left at another house for a few days. Then he did not want to eat. He got lost and we found him. Now he is back home but not feeling well.
Expert:  Ana Bascunan replied 7 months ago.

Poor little guy. So he was lost outside for a period of time?

Expert:  Ana Bascunan replied 7 months ago.

Does Rambo have a veterinarian that he could go see? My concern with his recent history of being at someone else's house and then lost outside is that he could have gotten into something toxic or that he could have been exposed to an infectious disease.

How is Rambo today?
