Why is it when someone has a question about a dog someone always replies with take the dog to the vet. Some people can't afford a vet and are searching for opinions. Someone who replies with well take him to the vet is either board or a smart ass. That's common freakin since to take the dog to the vet but some people are looking for home remedies. And that's a great idea I hope your dog is fine and well. But people who reply take him to them vet need to keep their brilliant take it to the vet ideas to themselves. That's annoying. You think the person who is asking for help didn't think of that. If you did take your dog to the vet would you please email this person a receipt with a big old thank you for saving my dogs life attached to the top. If anybody don't have an opinion out of their own experience to try to help this person please do the world a favor and shut up. Thank you. Oh by the way your dog could be stressed do to worms or a change of dog food or it might be parvo. Look for blood in his poop and search for parvo home remedies online. If he is drinking water and holding it down he is still doing ok.

HI,I don't know what breed of dog you have,but I have two chihuahuas and if their blood sugar drops because they havent eaten anything then they tend to go very quiet and start shaking...I have a syringe and put about 20-30 mls of milk warmed very slightly and add about half a teaspoon of sugar to it.  I then very slowly give it to them via their mouth.  don't force it in just take your time, once they taste it they usually like it...If you don't want to use milk you can do the same with water.. At first they didnt like the syringe but be patient and don't shout at the dog as it will become frightened of it, and if your dog is anything like mine you may have to use it quite often!  Also some breeds of dogs like the chihuahua are known to have the "shakes",Its just the way they are.. I hope this helps,but if you are concerned just phone your vet to be on the safe side. I am no professional, but I have had dogs all my life, and I know vets are expensive but some will give you free advice over the phone.Hopefully the syringe feed will sort it out for you..  Good luck!!  Michelle.x.

Anorexia is a common, vague sign seen with many different illnesses. The problem could be related primarily to the gastrointestinal tract and the resulting nausea is causing your dog not to eat. It is possible the nausea/anorexia are related to disease elsewhere.
Common problems are dietary indiscretion, infectious diseases, toxicity, metabolic diseases--pancreatitis, kidney problems, liver disease, etc.
As your dog is drinking water hopefully it is maintaining good hydration.
Seek veterinary medical attention if your dog stops drinking, becomes lethargic, or the anorexia continues beyond 24 hours.

Having a pet is a great responsibility and if you know you can't afford to take care of her and take her to the vet you then should not have a pet. If your little dog drinks a lot and doesn't urinate I can assure you that this is a serious problem that can lead to kidney failure and eventually death. Please find any way to get her to the vet immediately...You can make some financial arrangement with your vet, if you deal with a good doctor who does his job with love and passion for animals I'm sure he will help your little puppy. Good luck and please let us know how your puppy is doing.

While true, that logic is also completely moronic at the same time depending on the situation. Just because you're financially secure one day doesn't mean you will be the next. Things happen.

It is cruel to indiscriminately try out home remedies on a pet on something that sounds like a very serious issue. If you were seriously ill you wouldn't just sit around and try homeopathic remedies hoping that something works, you would go to a doctor as soon as possible. This is exactly why people recommend that they should take the pet the vet immediately because a lot of people think that trying a few herbs that they have in the kitchen is enough. It's not. You need to take it to the vet to be seen, it shouldn't cost too much and you and your dog will be much relieved. Also, the vet will probably let you make small payments if you need to. If you don't do it, you could end up feeling horribly guilty in the end if the dog gets worse and dies.

Yeah, bs. If I was seriously ill I'd be trying out home remedies all I can because I can't afford to go to the doctor. And if none of them worked then I'd most likely be out of luck.
