2 year old jack Russell not being herself?

by Tay

Ohk so I've had her since she was a pup and the first winter we had her she got kennel cough for about 2 months and then she was fine but she got it again last winter and then she got worse and they think she had lung worm or something .. Anyways she has finished her medication but she isn't te same , sometimes she is hypo and then other times she just looks sad and sometimes she dosent even come say hello when I go outside .. How do I get her back to normal and also what are some fun things we can do together ? :) cheers

Jack not being herself
by: Rachel

Sorry to hear about what your Jack has gone through. Sometimes sickness and then medication can wear out a Jack and their spirits as well. I know when I'm sick it takes me awhile to fully get over it. Dogs seem to love routine so maybe just keeping her routine the same, giving her lots of love and attention (which I'm sure you already do), and maybe some fun games to help distract her - like fetch, or giving her a Kong filled with peanut butter and biscuits.

I would definitely moniter her to make sure she isn't exhibiting signs still of being sick. And if her spirits don't raise soon, I would be in contact with your vet to make sure there is nothing else going on.

Keep us posted on how she is doing!
