I have a 6 year old MinPin named Clair.... about a month ago we had taken her to the vet because she had been drinking a lot, peeing a lot and becoming very lethargic. We found out she had an obstruction in her stomach (a piece of corn cob) and had to have surgery to remove it. After surgery her red blood count jumped because she had internal bleeding and ended up needing a transfusion. Finally after all this was done we found out that she has Cushings. She still was not herself but we were able to bring her home after two weeks at the hospital and although still lethargic she was eating and drinking on her own. Over the past 5 days she has stopped eating and drinking all together. We can get her to eat a little if we give her baby food thought a dropper. I am not sure if she is just giving up and wants us to let her go... or if she is just having stomach issues due to the antibiotics we had her on for so long. I do not want to see her suffer but at the same time I do not want to lose my best friend if she is able to be saved. Any advise would help a lot. Thank you!View Thread
