My 10 year old dog suddenly began behaving differently this

Customer Question

My 10 year old dog suddenly began behaving differently this afternoon. She won't eat anything (usually never refuses) seems to have lost her usual interest and energy. I 've checked to see if she could've gotten into anything, but have found no reason for this behavior.

I am sorry to hear you are worried about Marilyn. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

If you check her gums, are they pink in color? I see she is not eating; is she still drinking at least?

Can you take her temperature with a thermometer? Any vomiting at all?

Sorry for the additional questions but since I can't see and examine her, a little more information will help me.
