We have a lab almost a year old. She wont eat out of her bowl. She will eat the dog food if we put it in our hand but she wont eat it out of her bowl. She will eat other treats and table food. She also seems very lethargic per her usual self. We have been watching to make sure she is still pooping but something just seems off. What should our next steps be? Should we try changing dog food? Could she be going into heat?

    Hello,
    Bowl aversion is one thing but acting lethargic is a reason to see your vet. We always have to be worried that there is a medical condition going on and with that the vets should be seen.

    Hello,
    As with all pet related questions I always have to request that any pet medical problem be addressed first with a trip to the vet to make sure it isn’t something health related. Things like allergies, nutritional deficiencies and even congenital diseases that manifest as Looking like dry skin are things to be treated by your vet. After this I talk about diet, environment and supplements. Things to do now are adding moisture to the house with a humidifier. Brushing daily to keep hair and skin healthy helps and I like welactin an omega three fatty acid added to the food. Ask your vet about your pets preventative recommendations too. I hope this helps. Let us know what happens.

        Did they give you any options to treat it? Or a follow up plan? If not call and ask for one or seek a second opinion.
