Customer Question

JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?
Customer: We have tried just about everything!
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?
Customer: We took her to our vet who gave her prescribed canned foods plus a gel in a tube that is usually given to dogs recovering from surgery to encourage them to eat.

Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 6 months ago.

I'm sorry that no one reached out to you sooner. The weekends are typically quite busy.

What diet was she originally given as a puppy? Has she always eaten RMBs?
Has she had any desire to eat any variety of canned food or kibble?
Have you tried any raw recipes to prepare at home?
What RMB's is she wanting to eat at this time?
