|I can't say for sure if Coco has ever experienced bouts of depression --- it's possible she has, but it just never occurred to me that this is what could have been going on ... hrmm.
Here's what the 'experts' say:
Like humans, dogs do occasionally suffer from bouts of depression. They get mopey, lethargic, stop eating, and drink only minimal amounts of water, stop wanting to play, and even lose drastic amounts of weight.
What can cause this in pets? Grief, change of scenery, or sometimes it is a chemical imbalance, needing medication to correct it. Even the weather can adversely affect a normally happy dog. Or your health.
