Sleepy 9 month old Shih Tzu
My 9 month old shih tzu is starting to sleep a lot lately.
She is not as playful as she used to be and she does a lot of licking. She will not eat unless someone sits next to her bowl.
I am not sure if it is me or is there something wrong with her.
I think you should have your veterinarian give your pup a thorough check up to make sure there aren't any underlying health problems causing her behavior.
If she's licking herself a lot she could possibly have dog allergies of some sort.
Lethargy is often a symptom of illness, and so is loss of appetite. Although the fact that she'll eat if you're right next to her could indicate a level of anxiety over something.
I'm afraid I'm not a vet, and it's impossible for me to tell what is going on here. I strongly recommend a trip to the vet so that you can get an accurate diagnosis and any treatment if necessary.
Best of luck, hope your pup is doing much better soon.
