Customer Question
She won't eat, drink...

She won't eat, drink and her energy level is low. The only new thing in her diet is a milk bone brushing chew. She is panting alot without exertion.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. What is the dog's name and age?

Lil Bitt she is 4 and a min pin

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Lil?

She is a fatty 23 lbs we have her on weight management pro plan food

Have there been any changes to the diet? New food? New treats? Bones? Has any human food been fed? Torn up toys or trash? Stressful changes to the environment?

Is she on any medication at this time?
