Customer Question

I have a 13 1/2 yr old XXXXX XXXXX. He is just like normal when awake but sleeps a lot. He isnt interested in food and will only eat a little chicken if hand fed but wont go near his bowl. He drinks a little but just doesnt seem right. His same- litter brother died at 11 with liver failure. Do you think he is going the same way? I do not want to put him through tests ect if he is fading away as does not seem in any pain and gets distressed at the vets.

He usually loves his dinner and tends to be a little overweight. He does not seem unhappy just tired and 'uninterested'. Just like his brother was. From first seeming different he died in three days.
