Hello I am Dr. Joey. Thanks for trusting me to help you and your pet today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 16 years of experience. I look forward to working with you.This is a long time to go without eating. I have a few further questions I need to ask, though, in order to get you the best answer possible and understand what is going on:1)Does she have any symptoms other than not eating such as vomiting, diarrhea, coughing, etc?2)Does she have any known health problems or is she on any medications or special diets right now for this?3) What kind of dog is she and how much does she weigh?4) I need for you to look at her gums- are they a normal pink color (or are they white/pale or yellow) and when you touch them does it feel moist or tacky/sticky/dry?Thanks for answering a few more questions!
