Not sure who all read my post about adopting my new fur friend, so I will give a brief run down of the situation.
Last Monday I got a YorkiePoo from a lady who had only had him for one week. I guess she bought him from a couple who had him since he was a pup and they lost their house and had to move to an apartment and could not bring Benny. The lady I got him from only had him a short time because her male Chihuahua was not welcoming him. Long story short, I drove 3 hours to get him...and 3 hours back home with him.
It is now 9 days later and he still is not really eating or drinking water. I have brought him the vet twice - once last Tuesday and on Monday of this week. He has had everything checked; his blood, urine, electrolytes, glucose, etc. and everything comes back fine. I told the vet that he just started shaking on Saturday and she contributes it to him get groomed on Friday and just being a little frightened still.
Well, he still is not eating or drinking...and shakes uncontrollably all day. At first, after all the test came back ok, I attributed it to him being homesick...and still think that this may be the case, but not sure.
Can anyone tell me if this is "normal" for dogs who have been transitioned into new homes?
I had him on Purina Dog Chow...that is what his previous owner fed him...and he didn't eat that, so I bought Eukanuba Adult Maintenance Small Breed Formula Dog Food...and he won't touch that either. The vet put him on Hill's Prescription Diet® a/d® Canine/Feline pet food and he won't eat that either. I have been home with him all day and the only thing he has eaten is a Denta Stix...he hasn't even drank any water.
Is he homesick? I've already dished out over $400 on the vet in the last two weeks and seem to be getting nowhere fast. Is there something I am missing or doing wrong?
Any advice would be helpful. Thanks so much!!
