My lab is stressed out, pacing, making peeping sounds and following my 15 year old spayed female around. He eats, but is losing weight. Any thoughts?

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:

How long has Buster been showing these signs?

Would you say he is eating less? Drinking more or less?

Any vomiting, retching, excessive urination or diarrhea?

Are his gums nice and pink (not white/pale)? Moist or sticky?

If you press on his belly, does he have any tensing,tenderness, discomfort, or pain?

Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count his breaths for 10 seconds + multiply by 6)?
