Things have gotten worse for poor Karma.....
She has absolutely no appetite. She's been a little finicky for the last week, but now I put food down and she walks away.
I took her to the vet...all bloodwork normal, but I asked the vet to run a thyroid test. Her TT4 was 0.9....the vet wasn't concerned....it pissed me off....but I also requested a FT4 which they sent out.
This wasn't the vet I like to go to.....I hate when they talk about the dog walking in salt or getting into things. It just doesn't happen. My dogs eat in their crates and they all get their own special food. They do not get treats or table scraps.
I tried giving her chicken and rice. She didn't eat that. I tried 4 or 5 different dry foods, and even some canned food from the vet that was supposed to entice her.
She's skin and bones! They found nothing wrong with her at the vet. Today she ate 1.5 scrambled eggs, and ate one yesterday. The day before she had some chicken and rice and some wellness I got from a friend, but has not touched it since (that was dinner....she didn't eat breakfast)...similar issue the day before that (no breakfast, but ate some of my other dogs dry food and hasn't touched that since).....the day before that it was her regular food with yogurt mixed in.
This dog ate 1.5 cups of dry dog food twice a day and now suddenly she won't eat.......
I'm afraid she is going to die without me knowing what is wrong with her. My next step is calling the vets office and seeing if I can get an appt with my regular vet....I am also thinking that the saliva test is the way to go as well...
I'm totally stumped....
