Unhappy Lethargy?

My one year old siberian husky seems kind of strange, she has been for awhile now ever since she was about 4 months old she's been really lethargic and isn't very enthusiastic about eating, (She wouldn't eat a piece of salmon!) she has dhierria (sp?) occasionally but I thought it was just because some huskies have sensitive stomachs I'm going to the vet on tuesday so I'll ask about it then, but do you think it could be something bad? I'm worried

I think talking to the vet earlier would have been a good idea if this has been going on for eight months. Sounds a bit like hypothyroidism, but that's only a semi-informed guess and you'll need a vet to tell you for sure.

It may also be something so simple as not liking her food, and a switch might be in order.

Definately talk to your vet.

I would have brought her way sooner but the factory where my parents worked got closed because of the economy and we had little/no money for months, let alone enough money for her vet bills :sad:
And we couldn't get a payment plan thing because both of out cats had gotten abcesses within a month of eachother so our vet credit card thing was maxed at $1600
