Customer Question

He recently stopped eating as of today,,, but he's an eater and loves food, so this is not like him. He's 12 1/2 yrs old and he's acting very quiet and withdrawn,,, except he stays by me only.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about He 's?
Customer: Nothing else

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

Any retching, gagging, lip licking, drooling, vomiting, or diarrhea?

Is he drinking normally?

Are his gums nice and pink (not white/pale)? Moist or sticky?

If you press on his belly, any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?

Could he have eaten anything he should not have (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?
