Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question. Just like an in person consult, I have some questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible...

How long has he been feeling ill?

Has he had any new foods, treats or people food?

Is he up to date on his vaccines?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
All vaccines up today he's just started feeling ill a few hours ago maybe two or three and he's had no new foods and he hasn't eaten much today he won't take food or water right now

Great. Thanks for the additional information. I really appreciate it.

Since we're pretty sure he hasn't gotten any new foods, treats or people food, and since you haven't seen him get into anything he shouldn't, plus the fact we haven't seen any "real" symptoms from him, and it's hard to say for sure what is going on.

At this point. I would just monitor him. If he start vomiting or having diarrhea, or if he still refuses to eat in the morning, then you may want to have your vet take a peek at him, just to be on the safe side...however, it's actually normal for dogs to develop some digestive upset just like people. Most times it subsides on it's own with no long lasting effects...and since this has only been going on for a very, very short amount of time, monitoring him and then re-assessing him in the morning is the best bet.

I hope this helps.
