After work today when I get home I will take a video and post it.


They said it wasnt necessary at this time to do an ultrasound, however they did x-rays and the blood work they tested for everything and then a week later did it again to see if there was any changes in anything and tested her hormone levels as well which everything came back normal

I posted earlier, but don't see it. I wonder if this dog is in some pain? Everything points to her being uncomfortable. Maybe the dog sees your Mom as a source of her pain? (don't mean to imply that your mom has done anything bad to her, just that what ever hurts may be worse around your mom?) I think I would ask the vet for a week of pain meds and see if that works? You certainly have tried everything else. Just another idea.

After working as a Vet tech for many years, I have never seen this behavior in a dog. I have seen this happen in cats.
There is some underlying reason when your Chi will not eat. My suspicion is something like Addisons disease, Lyme, or other "hard to detect" condition. Has any Vet done a barrium series? That would rule out any digestive disorder. After that, I would consider testing for Addisons. It is a disease that presents iteslf in sometimes subtle ways. One being lack of appitite.
My Doc that I worked for always told me " a dog whill eat when it is hungry, if not, there is something wrong".

I wish you the best, you and your little one are in my prayers.

It's good now that she is eating something - it may be a phanthom pregnancy as you suggested that has her thrown out of sorts. Maybe in time she will go back to eating by herself, but for now I'd keep feeding her as you are.

She has stopped eating again and been back to the vet they are referring us to a specialist and they think it is a neurological problem. We are having an MRI done this week .

She is now walking off balance , staggering and shaking her head her balance is off she just seems to be going down hill. She is now growling and trying to bite any one who comes near her. There is a yellow gunk coming out of her eyes she was fed by the vet yesterday she threw up.

She seems to have the life sucked out of her now just having a blank stare not wanting to do anything but lay down
