Customer Question

My dog is 16. She hasn't eaten in over 24 hours. She seems to be in a daze, and she is having some mobility issues.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if your dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Lady.
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Lady?
Customer: About a month back, the vet said she may be developing normal renal issues due to her age and that, if she stopped eating, it could be cause for concern. Her feces looks normal in the yard, and she hasn't vomited that I know of. She seems to be peeing a lot, as well.

My name is***** and I am sorry to hear that Lady is not eating this weekend.

Here are some things you can try to stimulate her appetite today, before you can get her to the vet tomorrow-

-home cooked food such as eggs, chicken, white fish, and rice, oats or potatoes.

-Pepcid- the dose is about 0.5mg per pound of body weight.

Does this help? What other questions do you have?
