She hasn’t eaten since yesterday morning, has lost her

Customer Question
She hasn’t eaten since...

She hasn’t eaten since yesterday morning, has lost her potbelly that I thought she had because of worms and is very very lethargic

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What sort of animal are we talking about?

I’m not sure really, she looks like a terrier mix puppy. I found her stranded a week ago and hadn’t had the money to take her to the vet yet

Veterinarian's Assistant: The Expert will know if the puppy will be able to digest that. What is the terrier's name?

Waves

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

No, just that she is barely getting up and won’t move or eat. She looks like a skeleton now Ok

The same. She won’t eat or drink anything and looks like a skeleton and barely moves
Dog Veterinarian: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 2 months ago

How old is she?

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 in the last few days (even if your pet regularly receives it)? Torn up toys or trash? Stressful changes to the environment? Addition of medication? Toxin ingestion?

Any vomiting or diarrhea?
