My dog had a urinary tract infection and my vet put him on Cephalexin, 250mg 3 times a day and he took it for 5 days and he will not eat. Yesterday I finally got him to eat 1 hot dog after 3 days and now he won't eat anymore. I have taken him off the med and wonder when will he eat?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. There are all sorts of infestations your dog can pick up. I'll have you talk to the veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Picard and he is daschund and chiuaua (SP?) mix
JA: Is there anything else the veterinarian should be aware of about Picard?
Customer: I took him to the vet because of loss of appetite, drinking 2-3 quarts of water a day and peeing so much he couldn't make it outside. Vet took temp, 104 felt around and said uTI never any problems until this.
