Q. Ok, so I have a 3 year old GSP (German short hairand for the past week he has been not eating nor drinking anything and he is just staring at the wall

Answered By

A. Your dog needs to be seen by a vet immediately. Inappetence that long means that by now he's probably dehydrated. Staring means that he could be very painful or he could have a tumor or other neurological problem. At this point his condition sounds like it has reached the stage where it is considered an emergency.
