Q. Loss of appetite in 2 month puppy, lethargic always in resting position from 3 days,& she cry due to pain may be in abdomen,there is no outer injury

A. If your puppy is lethargic, not eating, and seems to be in pain, she needs to be examined by a veterinarian as soon as possible. She could have an infection, intestinal blockage, etc and need treatment. Your vet can run bloodwork and take x-rays, if needed, to determine the exact cause and necessary treatment.

A. This is an emergency. Your puppy could have ingested a toy or other foreign body and now have an intestinal obstruction , or it could have a parvovirus infection. Sometimes intestinal parasites can also make those signs. Please take her to a veterinarian today.
