I would call the vet and see what they think.  If your vet isn’t open this early, look for an emergency vet in your area…they’re usually open 24/7.  He’s probably just recovering, but if you’re worried you should call and see what they think.

Hm, that doesn’t sound great… I don’t have much experience with dogs but if you’re really concerned, call your vet and ask if you should move the appointment up.  Hopefully he’s just still recovering from the surgery!  If he’s starting to eat again that’s got to be a good sign.

Make sure he is drinking.  Its not that abnormal for them to be lethargic and annoyed with the cone but it can be really bad if he doesn’t drink water.

Call your vet or an animal hospital and run those symptoms by them. They could tell you right away if needed to come in or not.

🙁 I agree with the above… run it by a vet on the phone and they’ll let you know if you should come in. They may just up his appt. from tomorrow to today.

Is he drinking any water? That’s the big thing, sometimes they may not eat but as long as they drink. You can try some plain (no salt, butter, etc) boiled white rice and boiled chicken. I usually use the chicken water to make the rice. It’s easy on their stomach and sometimes they feel they are getting a “treat.” 🙂 You can overcook the rice and add a little water to in the dish as well to get more water in him. just little servings… like 1/4 or 1/2 cup at a time right now… 

But first things first, call the vet and run the symptoms by them.

I am no vet but I had a similar situation happen with my dog Kyra recently. Apparently the change in weather can affect dogs too and she developed an upper respiratory infection. She stopped eating and drinking and got really dehydrated and eventually had trouble breathing (the fast pant) so I took her in. They gave her fluids and some antibiotics and in a few days she is good to go.

Good luck!  I hope the vet says he’s just fine.

My dog is really sensitive so having a cone on her head and not being able to play like she usually does would really get her down. I would check with the vet if you are worried, but he may just be really annoyed and discouraged.

Poor thing!  I hope that all the medicine helps him feel better.
