Welcome to the forum! goo:)d-dog

There are a couple of things which you need to do if you desire the help of members of this forum with this issue:

1. Go to the introductions section of the forum to tell us all about yourself and any pets you have. This will provide valuable background, as well as being part of forum etiquette.
2. Please give full background information on this thread about your dog (you didn't mention his/her name): age, breed type (or nearest breeds if mongrel), previous health history, character traits, what food you are giving and how often, whether the dog is eating and defecating normally, whether the dog is drinking fresh water normally, how long you have had the dog with you, whether there were any previous caretakers....etc.

To be honest, without such information we would only be guessing "in the dark". There could be many possible explanations.

Hello Bixxi :)

I advise you to take your dog to be seen by a vet. It is not natural for a dog -even an older dog -to want to lie about all day. When they don't want to move at all, that means something is wrong. Very often it's because they don't feel well, or are in pain.
Please take her to be checked by a vet as soon as you can.

Yes, Tobi, that is good advice. I wrote to the OP by PM, but she has not been back to the forum yet to read our replies, so we don't know how her dog is doing.

I hope Bixxi did read our replies, or at least got advice somewhere else. I hope the dog is okay.

It is always wise, if a dog behaves in any unusual way, not to assume it's a 'psychological' issue. It's always better to get the dog checked for physical ailments first. Many dogs will show behaviour changes when they are unwell physically.

my apologies on the late reply
such amazing advise, turns out she was not feeling too well due to a few ticks even I have not noticed as I wash her regularly!! , and because of her age as well she is about 8 years of age,multease poodle (mixed breed) iv had her for a very long time
however after the check up she's back to her bouncy old self I am keeping her hydrated and some doggy snacks with loads of nutrition and she has her adoptive siblings to play with,she has less time to be lonely (cuute)goo:)d-dog

Thanks for posting back, Bixxi....although I am very late in replying to you!

That is very good news about your dog, and I am glad to hear she is better now. Ticks can be very irritating.

I will recommend you to take your dog to a vet. He will tell you what's the problem with your dog. Is he ill or something else? Sometimes you have to change the food and the dog will feel good. So the best option is to consult a vet first.
