    Grieving or sick Dog?? Help!

    hi i have a 10 year old yorkiepoo, her 6 year old daughter passed away a month ago. ever since then she has not been eating and drinking very little water. She acts like she's scared of food. she will get close to her plate maybe take on kibble and run away scared. I offer her chicken and she turns away and tries to get as far away. she will randomly (when she's walking, when she's laying down, when she's on my lap, etc.) lets out a cry like something has poked her and runs off. she hides under the bed and stays there all day. this behavior has been going on for a month. she's been to the vet twice and blood work has been done. Organ function is normal, and no heart worms. Is she just grieving, or could it be something else??? Vets admit its a mystery there is no signs of infections.

    Something must be hurting her. Take her to the vet. Dogs love food so if she isn't eating right something has to be wrong. they do grieve I believe not in away with food

    So tough since you've already done what I would have (blood tests, organ function tests). Grief can show itself in so many forms. Is there something that she absolutely loves to eat? I know you tried chicken, but maybe something even more enticing? I would be concerned that she may be getting dehydrated if she isn't drinking. Did your vet mention any need for IVs for hydration? You know your dog best, so if you think that there is something medically wrong, maybe get the opinion of another vet. I'm thinking of you!
