A:English Springer who has lost her appetite PetPlanet Vets PPAdmin firstname.lastname@example.org I am sorry to hear that your dog has stopped eating - this must be very worrying for you. In general terms, inappetance usually signifies an underlying disorder, which is impossible to determine without seeing the dog. It is possible she may have picked up some infection after her walk, or possible suffered a slight injury such as a strain or sprain which isn't painful enough for you to notice but is enough to make her feel under the weather. The fact that she still looks for her treats and is still bright and lively means that a serious disorder is unlikely, however I would advise you to have her checked over by your vet, to be on the safe side. I hope this is helpful, Sarah Mark BA VetMB MRCVS (Vet for PetPlanet)
