Lack of appetite, shivering and no energy

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name and age?

Dog Veterinarian: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 7 months ago

I am very sorry to see that none of our other Experts have reached out to you before now. I just came online and found that your question had not been addressed. How is your companion at this time?

Have there been any changes to the diet? New food, including a change of flavors or protein source within the same brand? New treats? Bones? Has any human food been fed? Torn up toys or trash? Stressful changes to the environment?

Any vomiting or diarrhea?

What breed is Jaycee?

Since I did not hear from anyone in a timely manner I felt that her condition needed immediate attention so I took her to an emergency veterinary clinic, so I no longer need your response. Thank you.
