Please help!!!
Strider is almost 5 months and has been normal healthy and very active until Monday night. Monday night he became lethargic and refused to eat and has not eaten since! No fever, has had all vaccs, can not find anything he could have gotten into. I did notice that he has 2 baby teeth (top canines) that are loose but still attached even though the adult teeth are in. Could this be teething issues? Dr did blood work and all came back normal. Have tried beef, rice, chicken, peanut butter, and his favorite treats, all to no avail. Please help I am so worried.

Was the blood work and vet visit AFTER he became lethargic and would not eat? Did the vet do x-rays? I would be concerned about a blockage. It is amazing how quickly they can suck down something like a sock.

Take your pup to vet, the sooner the better.

Lethargic worries me worse than anything.

Updates? I agree. How is the pup? You don't have a lot of time IF it is a blockage issue.

Blood work was redone today and due to elevated white cells he prescribed antibiotics, no X-rays were done. He palpated his stomach, checked his throat and could find nothing. He is not dehydrated but is dropping weight due to not eating. He gave him something to stimulate his appetite but has not worked. Vet said he is not so concerned as long as he is drinking water for now.

:fingerscrossed: Yay...Hope this is the beginning of normal eating again and recovery from what ever it was.

Good news for you! Vets often recommend feeding chicken/rice until the dog's digestion recovers-:). Bob

Well we are officially recovered! Back to his normal happy hyper self, eating his regular food and driving his big brother (our Dane) absolutely nuts! Lol
