My dog seems sick - she's older so what does this mean?



My Mom called and said our dog, who is about 11 years old, laid in the same spot all day, never went outside to use the bathroom, and didn't eat anything. She would only drink out of my Mom's hand when she put it in front of her face.

Is this the beginning of the end...? Or is it possibly a little virus that she will get over?

probably not a good sign.
might wanna get her to the vet first thing in the AM in case it's something they can fix.
especially if he/she starts throwing up.

take her to the vet

could be anything -- once had a dog that started laying down in the yard and refusing to come in the house. This went on for a couple of days then she suddenly got up and went back to normal

bitch refused to explain herself

I'd take her to the vet and hope for the best. Doesn't sound good though

Most likely she will be fine if you take her to the vet right away.

I hope your dog is okay.

This. One of my dogs is going thru this. He is over 14 years old. My Vet is making a house call the first thing today. Oh, my Vet is my daughter. I;m sure she will be taking him home with her due to me not being able to take care of him.

The vet is definitely a bad idea, search for more answers on the OT....
