Could teething be an explanation for this?
My 4.5-month-old puppy is teething and her gums are very swollen. She is known to have diarrhea when she's stressed, and she had one episode of that last night. I gave her some Kaopectate before bed, and the diarrhea has cleared up.
She played normally at the dog park this morning, but has been a bit quieter than usual all day today. She's also not eating like she usually does. Normally, she pounces on her food, but she's eating half of it, then ignoring the other half for an hour or two.
I recently started adding salmon oil to her food because she has dry skin, so it might be that she doesn't like it? Or maybe it's a combination of the stress from the teething and the new food additive? Either way, I'm keeping an eye on her because she's not typically this quiet.
Does this sound like it could just be intense teething pain causing some upset?
