Change in Behavior. If your dog has certain habits like jumping onto the couch to bark at the gardener or normally tangles in your legs during breakfast but hasn’t done so in weeks. It may be something to look into. Just like ourselves when we are not feeling so great, we act differently, we don’t talk as much or smile so often.
Excessive Panting. Dogs. Run. A lot. This is simply “how they dog”. Yet, if your dog always seems to be out of breath and panting, especially if they have done nothing but simply rise up from the floor. You may have a sick dog on your hands. A visit to the vet can put your mind at ease and it is always better to be safe than sorry.

Rapid Weight Loss. A dog’s weight can be known to fluctuate, especially between the summer and winter months due to the level of activity. That being said, if your dog suddenly loses a lot of weight without any real change in activity or diet, then these could be alarm bells.
