So on Wednesday I elbowed Perse, I don't know where and she yelped. I checked her over and she didn't yelp or move away at any of my touches. However, she will cower behind my partner and wont come to me. She is in this fearful/submissive pose and shivers the entire time. She will be with me if I put her on my lap, hold her, or if it's just me. She perked up when we went for a walk and even ran around with Bella. So I am thinking she is just in shock from what happened and needs recovery time from the incident. I didn't elbow her hard.. she went to go on my lap and I was putting my arm down
What concerns me is that the entire day she shivered and didn't want to eat from her bowl. I had to hand feed her 1/3 cup worth of kibble. Today I dropped them off at my parents house as we are going away for 5 days to celebrate our anniversary and my father mentioned that she didn't want to eat. I mentioned that they should try and hand feed her or place her food on the floor/a plate since she seems to be having a thing for bowls since I hurt her.
Am I correct that she could just be in shock and she will just need time to recover? I don't like it when any of my furbabies don't eat ):
I'll check back in tomorrow with my mother to see if she's eaten anything since our last call. I just wanted to ease my mind of worrying with some second opinions
