Customer Question

My pappillion is not eating and is acting listless. We have been in a new location for about 2 weeks and Im wondering if she is depressed. I've been taking her and my other dog to the local dog park which she seems to enjoy. I am 4 hours away from my vet and am wondering if I should find one to take her to tomorrow. She is rather high strung so its hard to tell with her. Any advice?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Sophia
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Sophia?
Customer: She's just Sophi..rather timid but buddies with my other dog Roberto.
