Hi there,

I'mCustomerand I would be glad to help with your question about Finn. Failure to eat or drink for two days is serious. It is likely that Finn is dehydrated at this point which only complicates matters. My advice is to take him to a veterinarian for a physical exam as soon as possible. If day time hours are difficult due to your busy schedule, then consider an after hour emergency veterinarian. Based on physical findings, the vet will advise you on any diagnostics that seem necessary as well as whether or not outpatient treatment versus hospitalization is needed. Until you can get Finn to a vet, keep him inside near water and several dog food options (low fat, bland foodss ideal: chicken breast without skin or fat, turkey or chicken lunch meat). Monitor him for vomiting or diarrhea so you can report that to the vet. I would not suggest any over the counter treatments at this time.

I hope that the information I provided has been helpful. Please remember to select REPLY TO EXPERT if you have more questions or would like additional information. It is my goal to provide you with the most complete information possible prior to you leaving a feedback rating. If you received all the information you needed, then kindly submit a rating.

Sincerely,
