    Dog Depression? Please Help!
    An_248984 posted:
    I've recently left for college and decided to get an apartment where I could bring my dog. She is 11 years old and has lived in the same house the entire time with a yard she can run and play in, as well as other dogs. It's been three weeks since the move and she is barely eating. She eats maybe 1-2 cups a day. You can tell she has lost a lot of weight since the move as well. She drinks just fine and has a bm every day.

    She has also started to bite at herself and has a couple open sores from it now. Last time I had left for college she did the biting thing and went to the vet which gave her a halo and antibiotics.

    What can I do to make her adjust better and get her to eat?

    She goes on walks every day and to the dog park which is more like a fenced in forest. I'm out of ideas on what to do.
