If your dog is refusing to eat, your first impulse may be to panic. However, there are numerous reasons why your dog might be ignoring his meals. Your pet is on any medications they may not be as hungry, as some medications have an appetite-suppressing effect. If your dog is simply being picky, you might try a different food, serving the food in a different dish, or mix in a little warm water or fish oil into your dog’s meal. This video provides some useful tips for encouraging your dog to eat.
If these tips do not work, you should contact a vet clinic in Saratoga or Campbell to schedule an appointment for your dog. Reduced appetite is one of the most common warning signs if your dog is sick.
