Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand Monster is panting and not eating, and also has dark colored urine. I am sorry to hear about Monster's situation. Is there any history of vomiting or diarrhea?

no
Dog Veterinarian: Scott Perry, Dog Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

This could be potentially serious. The dark colored urine is probably because Monster is not drinking enough water and is dehydrated. This is rather common in dogs that are not eating well. The panting indicates there is underlying discomfort or that Monster is not getting enough oxygen, which can be from heart or lung disease. The next best thing is to get Monster evaluated as soon as possible for heart / lung disease and to rule out sources of pain.

If the heart and lungs are fine then a painful abdomen is a high consideration. While you are waiting to see a veterinarian, I recommend to give Monster Pepcid to help decrease any potential nausea. You can give that every 12 hours. I also recommend to offer Monster a low fat diet for the next 3-5 days. Low fat foods consist of things like boiled chicken breast, white rice, or sweet potato.
