Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

1) How old are the dogs that you're trying to feed?
2) When did they last consume food normally for you?
3) Any vomiting or diarrhea?

Lucky may have fever. Normal is 100 - 102.5. If he does apply a cold compres (not ice) to his tummy and pads.

Rub a drop of syrup or honey into his gums to raise his blood sugar in case he is hypoglycemic.

Drain the water from can of tuna into a dish and let him lap it up for hydration.

Get a few jars of chicken baby food with no onion or garlic.
