Q. My dog wont eat anything shes real sad and walking around with her tail between her legs

A. Try tempting her to eat with something tasty like cooked chicken served warm as this smells stronger and can encourage eating. If she is still off food or this has been going on for a couple of days or there are other symptoms such as vomiting or diarrhea then you should have it checked out by your vet.
