Thanks so much for your very helpful reply. I am glad there is no jaundice. I can rule out hepatic lipidosis thank God.
It is possible he feels nauseated causing his inappetence.
Give him one quarter of a ten mg pepcid a/c (famotidine) in tablespoon of baby food. Make sure it does not contain onion or garlic.
Wait 30 minutes, then offer some warm foodGet vanilla ensure (its for elderly people) in any supermarket. Its milk based so hopefully he will drink it.on't over whelm him. Give him teeny amounts so his system gets used to eating.
Get a few cans of A/D from his vet.
Take his temperature. Normal is 100 - 102.5. If his is too low or high he will refuse food.
If he is dehydrated he will not eat so he would need SUBQ fluids.
Very slowly syringe feed a/d or baby food chicken or turkey. Insert the syringe in the side of his mouth where there is a space between his teeth. Don't hold him like a human baby. He will do best on his tummy in a nursing position.
Please let me know how he is doing. I will work with you until we get him eating and better.
