My question is my dog since Sunday night has been down just

Customer Question

My question is my dog since Sunday night has been down just wants to sleep all day. She is a westie 8 years old, she doesn't want to eat at all she was 2 days without eating and she the kind of dog that loves to eat. She eat twice a day. Her mood is aggressive that don't want her to carry her. The only way she been eating Wednesday night is with chicken I made her simple no salt. But she still continues being down. What could be wrong with her. And she has a weird sound that she makes in her throat? On 4th of July we went camping and she got on the lake so maybe she drink water while swimming. Hope I get an answer
Thank you.

She is a friendly dog and active. She never had this kinds of mood before. She don't want to play with my other dog at all. They always play together during the day.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.
Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:
Has she had any vomiting, gagging, retching, grass eating, or lip licking?
Can she keep water down?
Are her gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?
If you press on her belly, does she have any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing?
Could she have eaten something she should not have (ie bones, toys, rocks, plants, chemicals, etc)?
Has she had any diarrhea?
