My dog Rose and I enjoy the mornings. We wake up alert, ready to go. But this morning, my spunky, sturdy Rose was listless. She snubbed her nose at food and water and barely moved from a defensive crouch behind the chair. As I looked into her mournful eyes, I wished she could tell me what was wrong. After an anxious day, I brought her to the Vet. Rose has a gastrointestinal infection, and is now on a regimen of probiotics, antibiotics, and this being California, perhaps some version of downward facing dog.
