Hi all. Many of you know that my chi, Bonnie, is a dog with many health issues. They include having no lower 'fangs'. Both are impacted. Not bothering her. Smashed in nose, with a fairly significant over bite which makes it difficult to eat, snores when she sleeps, and the reason I'm writing yet again is that she refuses to eat nor drink for a day. The longest she has gone without these episodes is 31 days. The shortest is 3-4 days. She has just had one yesterday. She has been to the vet and had a blood test that turned out OK. Physical exam is normal. Vet is stumped by these episodes, and not very concerned; as everything is 'normal'. The worse symptom is soft stools sometimes. Maybe once in 4 episodes. Sample turned out negative.
I wonder if this could be allergies? maybe she builds up to a certain level, and then has an episode? She looks so sad, and just lies curled up in a ball. She does not want to be held (usual for her) or comforted. Should I just give up on finding the cause? She is always her little self the next day, running around when I let her out of her pen in the am. Thanks for listening!
