Oh, Didn't know this was a chat thing, but cool. Dog hasn't

Oh, hi! Didn't know this was a chat thing, but cool.JA: I'll do all I can to help. What is the matter with the dog?Customer: Dog hasn't pooped most of the day. In the past few days, he has pooped twice in the morning, then for 6 hours he won't poop, then he poops again towards the evening after dinner and sometimes at around 9pm. I noticed in the past couple of days he hasn't been eating that well or drinking much either. I feel him 1/2 cup of puppy kibble in the morning, and it takes him all day to finish it. Then another 1/2 cup in the evening, plus about 1/4 cup in treats throughout the day.JA: What is the dog's name?Customer: Koa, mini Aussie shepherd, 4 months old. We adopted him 6 days ago.JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Koa?Customer: He has ear mites, and is strongly resisting ear drop treatment. I think I've gotten in 1 drop, when we're supposed to do 5 drops per day. Lots of tears (dog and me) trying to get the drops in.

I don't know. She's a sweet quiet 1 yr old 1/2

I don't know. She's a sweet quiet 1 yr old 1/2 Australian,1/2 Border Collie. Last summer she was treated for Lyme's disease and ear mites and seemed to recover from both things and was doing well. Now she wanders aimlessly, when she lays down her head shakes like she has Parkinson's, she will scratch the floor, ( I assume that means she's in pain?) but she loves to have me pet/scratch her. She also wants to go outside 2-3 time an hour but only for 3-5 min. at a time. Sometimes when she goes out at night I need to call her back in after 15-20 min or so though. I don't know if she's forgotten to come in or if she's gotten lost in the yard or what. Sometimes she falls like she's weak, she'll lean against a snowbank, fall when she's going potty, and lean against the wall when she sits down. Gladys loves to lay directly on the register when the heat is on, always has loved this. She has started snapping at the female lab when she walks by. I'm wondering if this is something neurological? I'm afraid I may have to put poor Gladys down.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the Border collie. What is the Border collie's name?Customer: GladysJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Gladys?Customer: I just sent a detailed message.
