Customer Question
Dog will not eat...

Dog will not eat going on second day. drinks water, a little better today but is not interested in food. Quiet, but no pain or soreness

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?

Otis

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Otis?

7 years old, labradoodle, will do his walks, and will eat ANYTHING good or bad. Vets are all busy here, cannot get an appointment. Seems like he's a little better today, carries his tail up and is responsive. How long can he do without food?

Dogs can go for several days without eating to no ill effect. Has he shown any signs of nausea such as lip licking, drooling or vomiting?
