Dog Has Been Losing Weight (cont.)
When to Get the Vet
Has your dog recently gotten into any unusual chemicals or medications? Since many toxins have a direct effect on the nervous system, it is common for exposure to result in abnormal behaviors or neurological symptoms. This could include nausea or loss of appetite. If you know what chemicals or medications your dog has possibly ingested or inhaled, call the ASPCA National Animal Poison Control Center at 888-426-4435 for immediate advice. Plan to make a trip to the nearest animal emergency facility as well.
