My mom called me wanting me to make a appt to the vet for my Dad's dog, a Pomeranian. She is a truck dog and has been her whole life (4.5 years) is bouncy and really excitable dog. The past few days my mom says she has been depressed and not acting right. They bought a new truck and she is wondering maybe Teeny is depressed about the move and the new environment. I am making her an appt for Monday, because they are in GA and her vet is here in TX. I just thought I would bring it CM to see what you ladies thought.Answer Question
Sure they do. They feel differences and emotions and anything that could be unsettling. I think because they are animals, so many of us forget that. Hope she feels better soon.

YES- Dogs can get depressed- especially, when they have changes in their life- my vet was just talking about this with me a couple of months ago b/c my dog was hurt while being groomed and not only has she been in alot of pain; her whole personality changed- the vet came up with a pain med. that helped with her pain & she said it would also Lift her Spirits- i think it really does! Hopefully, your mom's dog is just going through a adjustment period & will bounce back in a few days- wishing you lots of luck!
