I have a 5yr pit who normally follows us everywhere. she stop eating and keeps to herself in her dog bed up stairs. she wont come when she is called.when i leave her out she lays down on the porch and looks like she did something wrong. i can sometimes get her to eat if i hand feed her with pumpkin mixed in her food. what could be going on?
We can not even begin to hazard a guess as to what might be wrong with your dog. If a dog is sick enough to stop eating, then a trip to the vet is DEFINITELY in order. Please do not wait any longer. Make an appointment for her ASAP, in fact, since she has already stopped eating and keeps to herself, I wouldn't wait until tomorrow, I would take her to an emergency vet TONIGHT. Sometimes, depending on what the problem is, a few hours can mean the difference between life and death, and since you have no idea of what is happening with her I wouldn't take any chances. Please let us know what happens.
