Good Morning and welcome to Justanswer. I am Dr. Loretta , a licensed veterinarian and am happy to answer your question.
I am so sorry that Stella is not feeling well.
I have a few questions to help me better assist you.
Did something happen yesterday that was different?
Is Stella eating today?
Does she seem depressed?
Any vomiting or diarrhea?
Sincerely, XXXXX XXXXX
Yesterday we went for a strenuous hike up and down hills for the first time in 6 months or so and she drank some standing water that i chased her from once i saw the water. No vomiting or diarrhea. She ate her treats as normal but has not eaten her food yet. She didnt scratch the ground as briskly as she usually does after going poo. She does seem to be a bit subdued. Seems like she is having weakness in her back end muscles. this is a very muscular and athletic dog.
Does that make sense to you, Mark?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please Reply so I can clarify for you
Thank you Dr. Loretta. I am waiting for her vet to call back for an appt. I figured i'd try to find some answers online while i waited. Thanks again
