I boarded a little dog a while back that would not eat. For a whole week she ate not one bite. She was fine when she got home. I had to board her again coz they had to go back to hospital, she told me to put food on floor, she forgot to tell me she will only eat on a paper towel on the floor. no bowl. So I poured it in the corner of her crate and she ate every bite twice a day. You might just sprinkle something on the kitchen floor. Just a thought. Hope you find out what is wrong!!

So we went to the vet last night, and this is the 3rd vet she has seen in this time period that she has not been eating.

I have tried sprinkling food on the floor, from my hand from a paper towel . Everything possible i have tried and she just turns her head and sticks her nose up at it.

The vets all say that they havent seen this before but her poo is goey which tells him its something bothering her in her tummy possibly acid which is turning her off food but it should not have gone on this long that she is refusing to eat.

He gave her a liquid that is something like tums to help coat her tummy to make it feel better if that is why she is not eating.

This morning we put baby food in a syringe and got two syringes down her plus some more of this liquid (tums ) . It was suggested from the vet because if we dont get any food in her then her organs will shut down its been to long for her to not have eaten anything and she is getting weak.

She didnt like us forcing her to eat that but its the only thing we can do to save her life and we will do it again tonight and hopefully this will help her to start eating on her own.

After we had given her the stuff she perked up there was a difference. So hopefully by tomorrow she will have interested in food.. Im hoping..


Any other suggestions?

Hi!

I have a 7 month old LC Chih and we had problems with him refusing to eat / drink just after Xmas!

He was vomiting and simply not going to the toilet atall.

After 2 days I took him to the vet and she suggested scrambled eggs. With the smallest amount of butter but WITHOUT milk 3-5 times a day.

We persisted with this for 3 days and he took to it very well, the vomitting has stopped and we've just started bringing back in his Kibble and doing well so far!

Might not work for your Chi but thought I'd share the advice just incase

We have tried the eggs, she wont physically eat anything herself just smell it and walk away from it.

She still has not eaten so yesterday we gave her baby food in a syringe and her medicine to help soothe her stomache in case it is acid. We had to force it in her mouth.

She is still not interested in any type of food and does not like it when we are putting the syringe in her mouth to feed her but we are just trying to save her.

We are going to visit the vet again today and get an ultra sound done as that is the only thing we have not done yet and hopefully they can figure something out from that since everything else is coming back as normal.

She also still has not gone to the bathroom and it will be a week tomorrow.

After we gave her 40ml of the baby food yesterday her stomache was contracting so we dont want to do this anymore which is why we are going to get an ultra sound done.


I hope its nothing serious She is getting weak and has lost alot of weight and is not playing or full of energy and is growling when anyone goes near her.

Have you checked her mouth to see if she has any infected tooth? Have you had a urinalysis done? What were you feeding before she started acting this way? Have you tried feeding raw steak? Raw chicken? Can you hear her stomach making any noises?

If she's not eating or drinking much, she won't be going to the bathroom that much.
