Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I have been in the dog field for 25 years. I am a Therapy Dog & AKC Evaluator/trainer/ specializing in behavior. It will be my pleasure to help you today.
Milk is not tolerated by dogs as it is for cats so I would stop giving that if it is cows milk. This could actually make her feel sick.
This is a relatively a short time to expect her to start interacting with you.Each dog is different in their trust levels , much depending on where they came from. If she has been in 4 homes then there probably have been similar problems in those other homes.
What was she like when you looked at her in the shelter? Did she come right up to you or shy away?
do you know where she originally came from? Meaning a breeder or pet store?
I would just give regular dog formula from the pet store and puppy vitamins. It is possible that her teeth are still bothering her so I would make another vet appt. It is also possible that her former home did cook for her and that is why she is not used to dog food. 4 days is too long to go without food so that is a concern. Use Pedialyte to keep her hydrated. But something is wrong, though she seems depressed, dogs will act like this when they are pretty ill, Check her gums and other vital signs. I will direct you to a site on how to do this. Also take some pancake syrup and rub it along the gum line to keep her blood sugar up.
