Pet not eating

November 16th, 2004, 04:55 PM
Our 6 yr old Springer has stopped eating her dog food (Science Diet). She also has refused meat scraps. She is a little overweight but gets a walk every day. She drinks water and her BM and urination seems normal. She seems to be "down in the dumps". No injuries that are noticable. Any ideas?

Could be something internal. I suggest a trip to the vet asap.

I have to agree I wouldnt eat science diet either, but no table scraps. I would take a stool sample and visit the vet. She could be just having a bad day as we all do. But if you see no change in her by tomorrow I would see your vet.

I would take a stool sample and her to a vet....Science diet is a crap food.And if she is a bit over weight,stop the scraps.Being overweight is not healthy for a dog....Good luck and let us know what happens.
