We just got an adult Basset hound. She is 3 years old, and very sweet, but has been having some issues. I'm thinking that she's needing to adjust, but would like to know what can be expected or what is normal for older dogs in a new environment. We have a vet appointment set up for this week, so the things I am going to bring up will not be only addressed by the folks here. Just want to know what to relax about and what may be more worthy of concern. She is not eating very much, but she is eating about .75 to a cup of dry food a day. She's been completely fine about our two adult cats. She just about ignores them, but this morning she jumped out of a near sleep and lunged at one of them walking by. Seems like she is having tummy troubles. I'm going to bring all of this up to the vet, but am wondering if dogs have tummy troubles like people do sometimes because of stress and just trying to adapt to a new environment. My spouse has been getting really stressed by all of this. His reactions combined with the dogs tummy troubles are going to give me tummy troubles soon! Our dog is eating and drinking. She's passing food and urinating. She's active and she seems to be playful. Is it horrible of me to not be as stressed as my spouse?
