10 year old Collie did not eat breakfast until 4pm and is now breathing heavily and fast. She moved into apartment with her 'mommy' last week. Could this just be stress from the move?? She didn't eat until she came back to my house.

Hi. I’m Dr. Denise, a licensed veterinarian and I'd like to help. Please give me a moment while I review your concerns.

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

Yes, decreased appetite can certainly be a result of stress. Dogs (esp Collies) can show their stress with decreased appetite or delayed eating.

She also had diarrhea

Thank you!

If she is also having diarrhea with her decreased appetite, I recommend mixing cooked rice with her kibble, or offering cooked rice mixed with minced boiled chicken to give her something easy to digest and to bulk up her stool.

To decrease any upset stomach and encourage her to have an appetite, I recommend:

Pepcid ac (generic famotidine) at a dose of one 20mg tablet every 12 hours for a few days while she transitions to her new home.

I wish you all the best with her transition.

Please let me know if you have any other questions. I am here to answer all the questions you have. If you have no other questions, I would greatly appreciate your positive review (5 stars). Your review helps connect Experts with other customers so your input is highly appreciated, and it is the only way that I am compensated. Thank you!
