Three days ago we brought home a 5 month old Coton de Tulear

Customer Question

Three days ago we brought home a 5 month old Coton de Tulear puppy. She is great but I am concerned that she is not eating or going to the bathroom very much.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

How long has she been showing signs?

Any retching, gagging, lip licking, drooling, or vomiting?

Is she not passing much urine or stool? Is she straining to pass either?

Are her gums pink or white/pale? Moist or sticky?

If you press on her belly, any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?

Could she have eaten anything she should not have (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
she is very shy and just wants to be in her crate.
