My BIL's dog.

He's been having some issues, and I'm curious. Has this happened to you? Any suggestions/ideas it could possibly be?

Hair loss.
Weight loss.
No apetite.
Sleeps/lies around ALL day.

This used to be an extremely active dog, he would actually run away for hours at a time if he didn't have his daily walks, and so it's definitely odd to see him lying around, practically moping. BIL claims that he'll take him to the vet next Friday, but I do love animals, and I'm concerned.

So again. Ideas? Suggestions? Happened to you? What happened?

  • That also could be signs of diabetes. Tell your BIL to take the dog to the vet.
