Default Not wanting to eat

This is for my family members dog.
He really didn't eat much yesterday. This morning he ate about 3 pieces of turkey deli meat and drank water.
No vomit or diarrhea.
Refused: dog can food, kibble, and white rice. He hasn't ate anything after the turkey. Hoping tomorrow he'll eat something.
They did buy chicken broth to see if he'd at least drink some (I'll find out tomorrow if he wanted any)
Do you have any recommendations on what he might eat?
They made him a vet appointment on Thursday. Which isn't "ideal" but it is what it is. And they just want to keep him eating for now.

I would use turkey BABY food instead of deli meat. If he is having digestion issues, salt really isn't ideal. Deli meats usually has lots of salt for preservation. I'm glad he is drinking water. Good luck on the vet visit.

I wasn't aware of that.
They or we don't have any babies or baby food for that matter. And we went to the store yesterday but I wasn't thinking about baby food. I have heard of people feeding dogs baby food just didn't occur my mind yesterday.
This morning we talked (it's actually my grandparents/aunt dog) and he didn't want the chicken broth last night. She ended up just putting about 4 tsp. down his mouth. He woke this morning and he voluntarily started eating kibble. He only ate a little and vomited shortly after.
I'm wondering if he has some kind of blockage as he puked the kibble.
Still hasn't passed any stool since Monday.
But he's still acting completely fine (barking, playing, and just being himself)
She'll continue to try to get him to eat whatever he'll eat.

sounds like some kind of blockage. I would call the vet, and tell them he hasn't had a BM in a few days, and is not eating. Vomiting what your aunt put down his throat and the little bit of kibble he ate means something is wrong. I think I remember that they had a vet appointment for tomorrow? Hopefully, they will keep that date.

He didn't vomit the chicken broth but the kibble did come back up.
This morning he ate ground beef and puked it hours later.
Still no BM and only vomited twice. And still acting his normal self.
His appointment is at noon tomorrow.

So he went.
The vet isn't sure what he has yet.
He can either have Parvo (they tested him)
Or he can have a flea/tick disease which they also tested for (he doesn't have any now but when they got him, almost a year ago he was covered in fleas and ticks)
Now they have to wait for the results.
They said both of these things can be the reason why he stopped eating.
He did end up having a BM last night.

The vet said to put him on chicken and rice until the results come back.
But they don't know how much to give. I've never given my dogs only chicken and rice so I really don't know know how much.
He ate almost a cup after he got back from the vet.
I told her just give him 3/4 to a cup for breakfast. And 3/4 to a cup for dinner. He weighs 14 pounds. I'm hoping he'll be just fine with this amount...?
