Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hello, I'm Dr Gary. I've been practicing veterinary medicine since 2007. I look forward to helping with your questions/ concerns.
What kind of dog is this?
Is he acting painful- arched back, reluctance to jump up, reluctance to do stairs, yelping?
That does sound like he is stressed, and with good reason. Many dogs will be anxious when their routine and surroundings are changing. This can manifest itself as nausea, diarrhea, decreased appetite and lethargy.
If there is vomiting/ diarrhea, then I would consider getting some bloodwork just to make sure he's not an Addisonian. Addison's is very common in standard poodle breeds and they don't tolerate stress well. As long as the signs are not worsening, then I would just get him to his new house and work on getting his appetite back.
Dogs like routine, so getting set in a routine will help.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
