That is the question....... did your veterinarian do any tests to she what is going on? bloodwork?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No she didn't do nothing
Expert:  Dr. Stacy replied 1 year ago.
Okay.... the key to solving a problem is understanding the problem. Your veterinarian needs to do some bloodwork. If there are no obvious problems there then they can try some medications to settle the stomach, but they should be injectable to start. Because dogs that don't want to eat really don't take pills well. And depending on what the medication is, it could further upset the stomach if it is taken on an empty stomach. Take him back.

Ok thank you Casey is a bad picky eater
Expert:  Dr. Stacy replied 1 year ago.
If he has always been a picky eater and he is feeling fine other than eating, I would consider trying Purina's Fortiflora. It is a probiotic, but it has been shown to stimulate appetite. You can sprinkle a little over her his favorite foods and see what happens. But I would still do bloodwork just to make sure I wasn't missing anything.
