I will preface this by saying I will be calling the vet in the morning when they open to get an appointment in.
I have been reading the forums, and I am a bit worried. My 12 week old chihuahua mix has suddenly started being a bit lethargic. Her eating has declined a bit, but drinking pretty good. She is peeing/pooping normally. She is wagging her tail when I talk to her, but just doesn't really get up and try to get lovings like she did previously.
I recently switched her food on Saturday. I've been slowly blending into her existing food. She hasn't had an issue eating until this morning. As the day went on, she has become a bit more lethargic, and now is weak and having trouble walking for a long period of time. She will go outside, go potty, then lay down, or stumble inside to lay down. She ate all of her dinner tonight, and drank some water.
Of course some of these symptoms are signs of parvo. BUT she is having normal bowel movements at this point, and not vomiting. A part of me feels like maybe she is nauseated from the food switch, or she got into something. She also has torn up some puppy pads, so another reason if maybe she ate some of it and it's gotten her feeling nauseated.
She has had one round of shots already, and has an appointment on Friday to get more.
What do you think? I'm financially capable of taking her to the emergency vet, if necessary. But I am not sure I should since she is eating, and doing mostly everything else normally.
What do you think?
SN: lethargic, weakness, slight decline in eating and drinking, normal bowel movements - recently switched food, one round of puppy boosters thus far
