Customer Question
or drink and will not...
She is a teacup poodle and is 14 1/2 yrs old. She won't eat or drink and will not sleep. She just paces the floor. She sleeps really well and sleeps in the bed with me. She won't even lay down in the bed
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the poodle. What is the poodle's name?
Customer: Winnie
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Winnie?
Customer: When she wont eat I can usually get her to take cheese or dog food from my hand but she is refusing everything

Experience: Hello, I am a small animal veterinarian and am happy to discuss any concerns & questions you have on any species.
Verified

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you 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:

How long has she has these signs?

Any gagging, retching, lip licking, drooling or vomiting?

Any breathing changes?

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?
