Health Questions & Answers



We left for vacation on a Friday she was fine. We received a call Friday evening from the dog sitter saying she was being lethargic and wouldn't eat or drink. We thought she was just missing us and thought she would eat when she got hungry. Now it's been 4 days she seems to have her energy back but she still won't eat, but she drinks a little now.

Dear Elizabeth,

Dogs can become very stressed when their families leave them. You might try having some ANXIETREX for such situations to reduce the anxiety. Sometimes it helps to feed the pet when the humans are eating and add a little bit of favorite food on top of the meal to get them started. Since they are social they like to eat when others are eating. During these stressful times it is also good to give probiotics to aid digestion. Also watch the bowel habits to make sure that is normal. Hope life returns to normal soon.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
