She is a black...

She is a black lab. A few days ago she stopped eating her food. She drinks but does not eat

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the dog's name and age?

Her name is ***** ***** she’s about 10 years old

Veterinarian's Assistant: How old is Shila?

About 10

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Shila?

She is not fixed. She’s an outside dog. I gave her some grilled chicken last night and she ate a little of that. She’s usually very hyper but she’s moving pretty slow

Are you still there?

Thanks for extra information

I have to wonder about a uterine infection in any older intact female

With that in mind and her inappetance this is one case where I would recommend having her examined

They should x-ray her abdomen and check her blood and urine

Can you take her in?

Paul
