Recognizing Signs of Your Canine's Loss of Appetite
What to do when your dog refuses to eat.
There are few things more frustrating than a dog who won’t eat. I discovered how hard this can be on an owner when my Nattie suddenly stopped eating at age 14. I tried every trick I could find to tempt her to eat, while my veterinarian did test after test trying to discover the cause of her sudden lack of interest in food. And I couldn’t help feeling rejected when she turned down the meals I so lovingly prepared, making the experience even more stressful. What should you do when your dog won’t eat? Here is the first question that must be answered: Is there something wrong, or is my dog just being picky? Only when you know the answer can you start trying to solve the problem with food selection and preparation tricks.
