Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pet today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have provided regarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? Any history of health problems in the past? Any vomiting or diarrhea?
Okay, How long has it been since her appetite been gone? With an older dog several issues can cause a loss of appetite. Things I would be worried about would be issues such as kidney disease, liver disease, or even cancer. He will likely need some bloodwork to rule those thing our and probably a physical exam would be able to detect any other issues as well. Can you tell if his gums are a normal pink color?
