Hello,

 

I am sorry your pup is not feeling well again. She will need to be seen by her vet right away, especially since she has not been feeling well for the past 2 days. Since she has had trouble before, she might have an illness that has to be managed for the rest of her life, something like inflammatory bowel disease. It is a good idea to have her seen by her vet and have some diagnostic tests run, including a fecal panel and some x-rays. Blood tests can be informative as well and should also be considered. Hopefully this is something mild like some intestinal parasites. If she is not spayed, she may be off her food and feeling yucky because of her heat cycle. If this is the case, spaying her will prevent future problems like this (as well as decreasing her chances for uterine cancer and infection. It will take an exam and some tests to figure out what is going on, but your dog cannot wait too much longer to be seen. She is a smaller dog and cannot afford to be off food. Please have her seen today or tomorrow and let me know if I can be of further assistance. If this has been helpful, please hit the green accept button. Best of luck with your pup, I hope she feels better soon and that nothing too serious is going on :)
