Have you been to the vet? It may not be related to the grooming and just happened to show up afterwards. Either way, if it's been a week and he still seems off I'd definitely get him into the vet.

Abby had the same problem after grooming. She has always loved our grooming sessions at home, but after a professional grooming in which a "furminator" was used (without my knowledge), she is very wary of being brushed now. She acted pretty weird for several weeks after the grooming. She also looked really ratty because the furminator removed all of her undercoat (she's an Aussie mix). I would check with the groomer to see if anything unusual happened during the grooming session that might have caused the reaction.

The lack of energy and interest in food makes me think it's likely an illness rather than something caused by the groomer. It certainly wouldn't hurt to ask the groomer more about their methods but unless you had a really sensitive dog, I don't see an unpleasant grooming causing a lack of energy for days on end. Plus didn't you say the behavior started a day after the grooming not right after?

Was that the first time you went to that groomer? First time your dog was groomed by someone other than you? My guess is that the symptoms and the grooming coinciding is coincidence but only the vet can really know. Lack of energy and interest in food could be a million things.

Is your dog young? Sometimes young puppies can be overwhelmed by a first grooming and they are simply exhausted. I'm a groomer and I will tell you it's a 50/50 shot, some pups sleep in the crates, the rest want to see everything going on and even when grooming is finished will pace in the crate until they are weaving on their feet,

If its only a day like this I wouldnt be worried especially if you are young. Grooming can be stressful. Other dogs around barking, the whole process. Some dogs are awesome to groom but while grooming are screamers or might have a temper tantrum that lasts a few seconds before behaving that takes alot out of a little doggie. Usually the more they get groomed with the same groomer the easier it gets.
