Jack Russell sick
by: Daniel

I know you are worried about bringing your Jack in but the fact that he is not eat/drinking is a huge red flag in my book. I would hate for your Jack to be in any pain or not get medication he needs in time. Please please consider taking him in! In the meantime, make sure he is warm, cover him with blankets or give him a hot water bottle in his bed. Also try hand feeding him soft foods and water from a dropper so that he has nourishment.
Definitely keep us posted on how things are going!
