    We have come back from 2 weeks in Newquay. My little dog was full of life eating well. In the last couple of days.her energy levels have dipped she feels thinner she just isn’t her usual happy self usually she eats on her own but im having to feed her by hand it’s like she’s starving but won’t touch food on her own. Her wormer is up to date. She’s pooing and peeing fine. I’m wondering if maybe she could have eaten something on the beach that’s made her unwell. Any advice anyone. She’s 2 and a half yorkie cross Lhasa Apso. She very small for her breed.

    She certainly could have, or picked up a bug due to the many extra people and their dogs down at this time of year. Or she could be completely knackered after her holiday! If she's peeing and pooing fine I'd give it another day of letting her rest, and see how she is, just make sure she's drinking as dehydration is serious. If she's not perked up after a day or so then yes I'd be popping to the vets for a check.

    As above, if she hasn't improved over the weekend I'd definitely speak to your vet.
