Okay, it's prob'ly too early to worry about this.
Last week, M'hijito boarded his ridiculously overbred Golden Retriever, Charley, at my house because he had the doggywobbles.
This was attributed to his having eaten a paper towel whilst counter-surfing. (Please...do NOT get me started!). Since said G.R. showed no serious signs of doggy diarrhea (maybe a little loose u-no-whats but no galloping urgency), I figured the kid was right about the paper-towel ingestion, and I went outside and offered thanks to the Goddess of the Blue Skies that the bird-brained bird dog did not develop an impaction...(I mean, really, do NOT do NOT get me started).
Exit allegedly sickly dog.
Enter corgi who decides, bizarrely, that food is not at the top of her list of desiderata. This is not good. This is sooo totally not good.
Being a corgi, Cassie is an enthusiastic consumer of food. To be off her feed is to elicit an alarming sign. The human's hair stands on end, that's how alarming it is.
I wonder if it was not the paper towel that gave Charley the trots, but possibly a passing virus that he has...kindly...passed to Cassie.
Meanwhile, Cassie continues lively. Balls are chased, humans are nagged, barking is barked, walks are taken (although we begin to lobby to turn back about halfway through a typical mile-long course). I don't know whether she's sick. But the food refusal scares the bedoodles out of me.
What's your experience with "off her (or his) feed"? Is this alarming enough to shlep to the vet, all other things remaining the same? Or can I safely wait for a few days to see what happens? Any advice on how to help the canine tummy to feel better?
