Hi I'm Rosie one of the vets and I'd like to try and help you and Abbey. I'm sorry she isn't eating well. I have a couple of questions, if that's ok.
- what food are you giving her at the moment?
- has her food changed recently?
- is she trying to eat and not managing it, or is she not interested?
- will she eat it off the floor but not out of a bowl?
- any vomiting?
- how long has this been going on?
- how is she in herself?
Sorry for the number of questions - the extra information will really help. You can get back to me by hitting 'reply'. Thank you, Rosie.
