Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
I am Dr. Emily. Thank you for the question. I am sorry to hear about your lab. How long have you had him back home since his vet kennel visit?
It is certainly possible that he is acting out of sorts due to being at the kennel/vets. It can be a stressful environment for any dog, especially a puppy. Do you know if he was fed different food while he was there?
Has he had any other symptoms, such as vomiting, diarrhea or coughing?
Ok. At this point, it is likely secondary to the stay at the clinic and not due to an underlying disease state. Some dogs are also exhausted after stays at clinics or kennels due to the constant excitement with dogs barking or people moving in and out. I would encourage eating --even if it takes mixing in some boiled hamburger and rice. If any other signs develop, you should see a vet but at this point, it would be ok to continue to monitor at home.
