Hello,

I am so sorry to hear of your illness and disability, and that on top of it your Yorkie is behaving differently to you. That must be so sad.

It appears your first expert has left the conversation. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

Who feeds him? Is he the only pet in the house? Are you able to take him for walks?

How long since you are home now? Some additional information may help me to help you better. I hope to hear from you soon.
