My dog has not eaten for 5 days and she's not able to get up

Customer Question

My dog has not eaten for 5 days and she's not able to get up and walk just getting weaker and weaker
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The veterinarian will know if your dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Britzl
JA: Is there anything else the veterinarian should be aware of about Britzl?
Customer: Before this happened she was limping on her right leg rear and then just before she got started stopped Heating she started walking pretty good whether it's a coincidence I don't know the thing is about a year ago I live in Florida and she had gotten ahold of a deco and she got sick I don't know if she got a hold of another one now I don't usually let her outside because she's an inside dog I heard that geckos have like a poison in them and if she did eat that maybe that's what she's sick from my mother but then I also heard liver problems
