    Not well

    Yes I know we should go to the vet however that at the moment isn't a possibility.
    Penny, almost 11 is a st. bernard.
    She isn't eating much, I've gotten her to eat a few dog treats and a bite of bread since sunday night.
    She isn't drinking anything.
    She can't get up.
    She isn't very responsive. (hardly responds to touch or voice)
    She isn't opening her eyes.
    She falls asleep within seconds, she slept all night and yesterday evening and she still can't seem to stay awake for even a short period of time.

    (she has a new lump I just noticed that she is licking when she isn't sleeping, not sure if that's related.)

    -We will most likely be going to the vet asap. Any advice or suggestions for the moment?

    -Michelle

    I'm sure others will have better advice for you.
    But until you can get her to the vet at least try to keep her hydrated.
    Literally force water into her mouth. Maybe a turkey baster or some type of syringe.
    Or see if she'll lick ice cubes.

    I hope you can get her the help she needs soon. Sounds serious.
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Elevem lis old for a Saint Bernard - I agree on keeping her hydrated, but this sounds serious. Did it come n suddenly, or has she been slowing down?

    She's been slowing down for years especially this winter but it came on rather quick.
    She got stuck under a shelter for nearly half a day which was likely the start. (though hadn't been doing as good for a couple days)
    She can't really open her eyes and can hardly lift her head. (She is moving a little bit more now...)
    She's a good temperature and seems to be happier at least.
    We got some protein in her at least.
    She's sleeping again.

    She drank a fair amount of water.
    Eaten a few treats.
    She's beginning to move a bunch.
    She is now noticing her surroundings and responding.

    Glad to see she's doing better, I have a soft spot for those pups.

    The mayor and I were owned by one saint when we were kids, and later my wife and I had the privilege of being the laps for my parents' Saint Bernard. We referred to Brunie as our laps dog.
