• We just moved, and then my chihuahua spent 4 days in a PetSmart Pet Hotel. When I picked her up she had obviously lost weight and now she is listless, stumbling and won’t eat. How can I get her back to normal?

    Hi Mandy, I recommend that you take her into see a veterinarian as soon as possible if you have not already done so. The symptoms that you are describing are concerning and could be caused by a potentially serious underlying medical issue. Your vet can talk to you about the most likely cause of the symptoms after they have examined her. They may recommend some lab tests to help diagnose or rule out certain diseases. The treatment that she needs will depend on the underlying cause and severity of her symptoms.
