I have an 11 year old female boxer mix that has gotten really lazy, not eating and gums are really pale. She is normally a active dog even for her age. Have any ideas on what might br the problem?

Whatever the problem is IT IS SERIOUS and you need to see a vet asap. Please. Pale gums most likely signal anemia. And this can be as serious as Immune-mediated hemolytic anemia which can be deadly in a hurry. Some tick-borne diseases lead to anemia. One way or another, your dog needs medical help now.

When a dog becomes anemic it’s either because they’re losing blood (which could be internal also) or their blood is being destroyed (by infection on their own immune system)
