how can you tell if your dog is just mourning or is in depression. His Friend Bear passed away last week. charlie eats but doesn't seem as happy as he did. does he need a new friend. Bear & Charlie were together for 4 years.
It is hard to tell but it sounds like your pet is mourning. This is normal in dogs. Try placing an old blanket, or anything with bears scent on it, close to charlie. More activity and a new friend will also help. Vetcare
