Hi. My dog Boots is 9 years old . She is a GS/collie and was spayed shortly after we got her from the rescue centre when she was 7 months. In September last year she broke her cruciate ligament which was mended. In November her long time companion had to be put to sleep. aged 16. In March she had a cancerouus tumour removed from her throat and in may she managed to strain her other cruciate ligament which fortunately did not break. She has been reluctant to eat for 2 months and when the vets took her for examination (x-ray and ultra sound) I think we were all expecting to find more tumours. It will be difficult today to obtain any scan or x-ray results as the vets only run an emergency clinic on Saturdays.
During the day Boots has my daughter's dog as a companion and we have also got a cat who keeps both dogs in check. He has been living with us for a year and both dogs are respect him!
Boots has had very loose faeces for some time, even before she became reluctant to eat. This week I have been feeding her cooked turkey which she is quite keen to eat but seems to be having a more drastic effect on her motions!
I am not sure whether my dog's loss of appetite is physical or psychological and would value your opinion.
