Ok sounds like Molly has pretty pretty persistent food aversion. Which is pretty unusual if she is getting people food which seems like she prefers over dog food.
My thoughts are that she may have a mild gastritis (inflamed stomach
), or internal organ malfunction such as kidney or pancreas upset( due to a predominant people food diet
). 3 days duration is a little long for my comfort and if this were going to resolve itself with conservative treatment I wouldn't have expected her symptoms to last this long. It would be best for her to visit A vet at this stage to run some bloodwork on her again because repeats bouts of inappetance with mild lethargy is a red flag for internal illness. If I were her vet at this stage I would make sure to run a cPl snap test to rule out pancreatitis
and if her symptoms don't improve with medical treatment (antibiotics, probiotics and bland diet) then more advanced testing may be warranted.
But my thoughts are if she isn't a) Sniffing the food and showing at least interest b) Still begging for other foods at the table c) Still as active as she always is, then an underlying problem is there it just hasn't been found yet. But with just inappetance as a symptom I don't have much else to go on without having examined her myself.
For tonight I would recommend perhaps Pedialyte (non-flavored) to provide electrolyte support and you can try to giving her some Pediasure or Ensure using a syringe or turkey baster to try and get some nutrition in here until you can get her rechecked by your veterinarian.
Please feel free to reply with any additional questions or comments about the recommendations above and I will be happy to continue the conversation.
