    We are a little bit worried about my mums terrier pip!

    She's 12 years old and up to now has had no health issues and no reason to go to the vets!

    About 10 days ago she pulled a muscle in her back leg whilst on a walk, it has improved but she's still limping on it.

    She had a dog chew last saturday but since then she hasn't eaten anything! She's drinking as normal but has only had tiny bits of food. She dosnt even want ham!!

    Do we leave her a bit longer to see if she improves? Take her to the vets? Or is there anything we can try at home to get her back to her normal self :(

    Any advice greatly appreciated!

    Kim xx

    Luckily i have never been in this situation, i hope Pip is okay..

    If i had been in this situation i think i would deffinaly take to the vets if she is not being herself. Better to be safe than sorry in my opionion. Im sure others will be along soon who have experience with this type of thing. Hope she is better soon. :)

    Let me understand this :confused:
    You have a dog that hasn't eaten properly for a week and it hasn't been to the vets yet? :(
