She will not eat...

She will not eat, all she does is sleep

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 the dog. What is the dog's name and age?

Roxie and she is a year and a half. On 2/20 She received her first AI and we are suppose to confirm 3/30

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

I am sorry to hear that Roxie is refusing to eat and is so lethargic all she wants to do is sleep.

This is definitely not normal in a dog in early pregnancy and concerns me very much. We need to worry about an infection. I know that she isn't due to be rechecked until the 30th of March but I highly recommend that she be examined now.

I would recommend an exam, a complete blood count and depending upon those results maybe an ultrasound of her abdomen and/or a biochemistry profile to check organ function.

If she is a valuable breeding bitch this is something we want to catch early and treat.

Please let me know if you have any further questions.
