Customer Question
She is a 9...

She is a 9 yr old Rottweiler/Doberman mix. She hasn't been eating as much as usual. She does drink water, and does eat a little at a time. This started about 2-3 weeks ago, My husband noticed tonight that her stomach seems bloated. She isn't lethargic, doesn't seem to have a fever, but her nose is dry. Usually when we're eating dinner, she's right there for table scraps, but not lately. Also she is updated on all of her shots. My husband wasn't sure if she pooped today though, and I wasn't here last week. She usually has a great appetite, but that has changed. She eats very little. I'm concerned.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. It could be an infection. The Expert will know what to do. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?

She's still active. Goes for a run in the park daily, but the not eating concerns me the most. And the bloated stomach. It's not rock hard, and doesn't seem to bother her when I prod and feel around, but still a concern.
