Customer Question

I have a year an a half old female dog that we have had for three weeks. Everything was fine until today. She is very active and happy but she hasn't eaten anything nor drank water. She won't eat her treats either. Her stomach seems to be gurgling but her bowel movement was normal.She hasn't eaten or drunk water since 6:00 last night.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Tessa
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Tessa?
Customer: Not that I can think of.

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

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

Any breathing changes?

Are her gums pink or white/pale? Moist or sticky?

If you press on her belly, any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?

Could she have eaten anything harmful (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?
