My dog Sophie, a West Highland White Terrier, has become afraid of my family in the past week. We have had her for 3 years now and she is usually playful, crazy, and energetic. Lately she seems like she is 10 years old! She has been laying down anywhere possible, ears droop, head low, and tail between her legs. Earlier this week she escaped and got into a small fight with a neighborhood dog which were not very sure about yet. But, she might have a medical problem but we dont want to take her in unless its nessarcary. Please help and post anything and everything possible!

Thanks, Rowland Family

Consider it nessarry now!!! She most likely has a medical problem. A dog's personallity does NOT change that quickly.

I agree with the above. You as the dog's owner will be more in tuned to your dogs behavior changes, so if the way she is acting now is bugging you then it might be for a good reason. Things like sudden fearful behavior or depression are a symptom of myriad of diseases. So if at all possible take her in for a check.

P.s. we all know that vet bills can really put a dent in your budget, so for future reference consider looking into pet insurance so that you don't have to pay so much.

I hope your dog will be ok.
