Dog is Sleeping All the Time?

My 4yr old Pit Chocolate Lab, started to sleep all the time. We got a Dane Boxer mix about a year ago, she is just about a year old and full of spit and vinegar. And she wants to play all the time and she tries to get the Pit to play with her. Sometimes she will, but mostly she will walk away and go lay down. So I don't know if it is jealously or should I have blood tests taken. I am very worried. She was so full of energy when we first got her, she is eating and drinking as usual.

I just don't want her to be sick and I am not helping her ya know? We did take her to the vet, he said she was fine, but to bring her back in a while if things did not change. I don't know if it is she just settled down or there is a problem. I would appreciate it if any one has a Pit and has this issue please let me know. I am always afraid of diabetes. We had another pet that had it, but she was 13years old. Thanks.

Do you pay more attention to the younger dog than the older one? Maybe if you encourage the play with the older dog by playing ball or ruff & tumble with it .

Congratulations on giving another Dog a good home. But with no disrespect you should have found one around the same age as the long term resident.

I have heard this story so many times. And seek another consultation from an independent Veterinarian.

I have a 4 year old pit/boxer mix. All the pibbles I have seen are very laid back dogs. And, I think labs are very easy-going also. So, with that combination, I don't think it's unusual for him to sleep a lot. And, it is summertime. Maybe the heat has something to do with it. Be sure not to let him get overweight. I keep my dogs' weight in check by counting calories. Keep a food diary if necessary, just like a human. Milk thistle capsules are very good for animals, they help cleanse the liver and rid the body of toxins. Try keeping a diary of his symptoms. You see him every day - the vet sees him only for a few minutes. Your dog is lucky to have such a concerned human.
