    Default Starting week 2 of tail tucked, head dow depressed pug

    Well we are starting week two of this weird behavior. Two visits to vet, xrays, full blood and chemistry show nothing physically wrong, absolutely no changes in household in this time frame. Eating a bit, drinking a bit, tail tucked, head down, no play. Likes his walks but thats about it. Keeping to himself still. Sleeps on bed at night but kinda away from us. No obvious pains at any point of touching him or running our hands over him. Potty habits are still good. At a complete loss as to what next??? Maybe it is depression but from what-I have racked my brain.

    How old is Buster and is he neutered?

    Take care,

    I'd find another vet & get a second opinion. That's not normal especially for a Pug.

    I would be concerned about a possible neurological issue with the symptoms and lack of anything showing on blood/urine and xray.

    Take care,

    I think I'd look to another Vet as well.
    Petey is clearly unhappy.
    Hope you can find the cause soon.

    Thanks! My husband just went home for lunch and found him shivering and curled up in a ball under his desk! What the heck is going on? Yes another appt is needed for sure, for whatever reason I am thinking ears perhaps? He is not scratching them all the time but the fact that he won't take treats our of our hands makes me think something is going on head wise, although as I said he does not appear to be in pain. I cannot imagine this is anxiety separation gone wild? Never ever had a problem plus he has Buster there to keep him company. Thanks for listening, I think all my friends and co workers are sick of hearing about this now!

    Shivering (when not cold or frightened) is almost always a sign of pain.

    Yep that I have read, just trying to understand why it seems to come and go? Again could be dental, I do not believe that has really been looked at. Maybe why he is not interested in eating this morning,when yesterday it seemed fine. I will continue to monitor and let everyone know the next steps, whatever they are. I guess if he were vomiting and diarreah etc I would feel like I knew more. If his blood work and test had not come back perfect-just confusing as heck.
