Thank you for your question. My name is***** I have been a small animal veterinarian for 14 years and I'd like to help with your question.

On a hot, humid day a dog can have a slightly decreased appetite, but I wouldn't expect them to not eat at all. And if they are offered something special, like a treat, they should eat it readily. So if your dog has stopped eating completely and especially if she will not even take treats then something else is going on. If you can give me some more information (age, breed, other symptoms) I might be able to help more.
