My dog refuses to eat and won't move around as much as he did.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help your dog. What is the dog's name and age?

Thor, 2years

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

He drinks water fine, he was throwing up but that passed a week ago.

Dog Specialist: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 4 months ago

Prior to the vomiting and up until recently: 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? Torn up toys or trash? Stressful changes to the environment? Addition of medication?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
No changes in diet, my house has 6 kids which he has been around since he was a puppy. No new toys.
Dog Specialist: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 4 months ago

Is there a potential of human toys being consumed/chewed up or human food being given?
